Marco Flamingo is a Mom’s Choice Awards® Silver Recipient.

Meet Marco. He is just a regular flamingo with regular flamingo friends. There is just one problem. Marco wants to be a winter bird. Every year he watches his geese friends fly south to get out of the cold. He cannot understand them because this is just the thing he’s craving. Watch what happens when he travels north for the winter.

This title is available in English–only, Spanish–only or bilingual English–Spanish editions.
