A whimsical story that has four multi-cultural children imagining what life would be like as a pet parrot. Join parrots and children as they climb all around the house, over furniture and up the curtains with four-toed parrot feet, then chew wooden spoons, popsicles and popsicle sticks, and even a telephone directory with their hooked parrot peaks. The parrot fun continues with eating delicious vegetables like broccoli, squawking, talking, bathing, and finally snuggling down for the night. The "For Creative Minds" section has parrot fun facts, tips for taking care of a pet parrot and a make-a-beak craft to supplement learning. All Sylvan Dell titles feature free educational resources at www.SylvanDellPublishing.com, including the "For Creative Minds" sections and additional teaching activities. 2007 ForeWord Book of the Year Award finalist
