About Parrots is a colorful, educational guide for children. On each page, there is a gorgeous picture showing the bird in its natural habitat. Coupled with this is an interesting fact about parrots. At the end of the book, there is additional information about each type of bird. The book includes about eighteen different kinds of parrots, and a glossary highlighting some possibly unknown words. My three-year-old cousin loved this book! We would both give the book five stars. He enjoyed all the colorful illustrations. This book is great for teaching young children about the different types of parrots. The included glossary is also a great way to learn some new vocabulary words! All in all, we would both recommend this book to anyone looking to learn about parrots! Review by Emily T, age 15, Broward Mensa
