If You Were a Parrot

Join the fun as children imagine what life would be like as a pet parrot. Together parrots and children 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 beaks. 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.
