Much discussion can be opened up after this story is read and I love how we watch the character through the pages doing things that a parrat would do. This was a funny story and children would definitly remain engaged. I think as teachers we sometimes forget to read simple, creative stories for fun and this is one that could be used. This book is also interactive as well. At the end of the story there is also activities such as a parro [...]

    4. This is a great book that would definitely keep children engaged. It is about a girl who talks about what it would be like if she were a parrot. Some things are alike and some things are different. This would be good when comparing and contrasting humans with animals. It is very funny. At the end of the book there are extension activities that tell how to make a parrot beak with construction paper and also an information page on what you need to know if you are getting a pet parrot.

    5. How can I have lived this long and never noticed that two of a parrot’s toes are on backwards? This playful and original book about life as a parrot is as entertaining as it is educational. My view of parrots is forever changed!Listen to our chat about this book on our JustOneMoreBook Children's Book Podcast:justonemorebook/2007/0

    6.

    7. Children pretend they are parrot. Cute Toddler and up and must be the right toddler group probably more preschool.

    8. It was ok. I have liked many other Sylvan Dell books better. The illustrations, in order to capture the feeling of a parrot, they get a little creepy.

    9. Fun illustrations of children with bird features and very accurate portrayal of parrots in my experience.

    10. A fun story where kids can imagine and see what they may look like if they were a parrot. Vivid and colorful illustrations are in this book.

    11. A fun little story about what kind of physical features and behaviors children would have if they were parrots. Nice - a little kooky - illustrations.
