Publisher Summary
Presents an introduction to parrots, describing their different types, what they eat, where they live, and how they protect themselves from predators.

This beginner's guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of parrots.

In this addition to the acclaimed About… series, 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 further details on the parrots featured and inspires young readers to learn more.
