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, including the "For Creative Minds" sections and additional teaching activities. 2007 ForeWord Book of the Year Award finalist

"I smile when I think of this book knowing that both the author and the artist have done a wonderful job of hooking a child into the interesting and complicated world of companion parrots. This education will help a child, as an adult, make the right decision to enter into the world of parrot companionship." -- Cheryl Rose "Co-Education Director for the National Parrot Rescue and Preservation Foundation" Rawson and Rogers explore the world of parrots in this vibrant celebration of children's imaginative play. This is a book worth squawking about. - School Library Journal Children need more books like this ones that intrigue them and widen their view of the world.
