Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
.the "Amazing Animals" series will attract both beginning and struggling readers. The large, beautiful photos on each spread include vivid shots of animals in action as well as close-ups of their faces. Photo captions consistently add interesting animal facts, and occasional vocabulary words are defined at the bottom of the pages, adding to the clean, appealing layout. In addition to the engaging photos, the text is laid out in a large, easy-to-read font. The text, although made up of simple sentences, conveys plenty of interesting information.

I have most of the books in the Amazing Animals series and find them very appropriate for my 4&5 year olds. The books are short, factual, and have large-sized real photos. These would be great additions to any preschool teacher's library.

Author Valerie is confident on different genres. Parrots is a good book. It is directed for children but we parents love it as well. I would suggest both author and editor to publish this book also in hard pages edition too -not just the cover (I haven't found it up to now). This would allow kids to explore the book without damaging it. I think some of the pictures could be changed to show more children favorites parrots as for instance scarlet macaws. Good pics, good facts and good writing. Good book no doubt. Thanks, PG
