Baby Flo

Baby Flo


This spirited biography introduces young readers to the early life of Florence Baby Flo Mills, an internationally renowned entertainer of the Harlem Renaissance era who began her career as a child.


Straight up: Florence was a remarkable child, and that's a fact.

Pint-sized dynamo Baby Florence Mills sang and danced just about as soon as she could talk and walk. She warbled a tune while her mama did laundry. She strutted through the streets of Washington, D.C. with a high-steppin' cakewalk. Flo's mama and daddy knew they had a budding entertainer in the family, so they entered Florence in a talent contest.


Baby Flo went on to become an international superstar during the Harlem Renaissance -- but first she had to overcome a case of stage fright and discover that winning wasn't everything. Here is the spirited story of that spunky young girl learning to chase her dreams with confidence. A sensation in her time, Baby Flo is back, dancing and singing her way into hearts and history.
