Publisher Summary
A classroom favorite and beautiful, informative first glance at parrots from the creators of the award-winning About... and About Habitats series.

"An appealing and comprehensive introduction." ―Kirkus Reviews

In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what parrots are, what they do, and how they live.

With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the diverse population of parrots--from the colorful Blue Lorikeets of the Polynesian Islands to the Rosy-faced Lovebirds of southwestern Africa. An afterword provides more details.

About Parrots is part of the award-winning About... series. Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary science units on animals.
