ABOUT THE BOOK
In this appealing addition to the acclaimed About series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what parrots are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live. Illustrator John Sill introduces readers to a variety of parrots, from the colorful Blue Lorikeets of the Polynesian Islands to the Rosy-faced Lovebirds of southwestern Africa. An afterword provides details on the parrots featured and inspires readers to learn more.

Another fabulous book by the Sills. I'm not sure what I can say about this one that I haven't said about previous books. I learned a lot about parrots, where and how they live, and why so many species are in danger. Each page has one or two sentences accompanied by a beautiful illustration. There is a section at the end of the book that gives more information about parrots in general as well as about each of the highlighted species. A great book for young bird lovers.
