Did you know that parakeets come in a variety of colors, molt at least once a year, and have eyes on the sides of their heads? These are just a few of the fun facts a reader will find out when reading this book. Simple information about caring for these beautiful birds helps the reader to know how to treat a parakeet. Find out what parakeets like to eat besides seeds, what they like to play with, and how much flying time they need each day. Learn that some parakeets will talk just like people! This book is plainly written for the young reader to understand. There is a glossary in the back to help with terms that might be difficult. The vivid pictures show how attractive these creatures really are. Also included in the book is a web site to go to for further information. This book would be useful in the classroom when talking about animals in stories or science. This book is part of the "Let's Read About Pets" series. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 3 to 7.
