This book is about recounting the efforts of the scientists of the Puerto Rican Parrot Recovery Program to save the parrots and ensure their future. By reading this book, it invites readers to witness the recovery efforts that have enabled Puerto Rican parrots to fly over their island once again. This book has notable features such as descriptive words and accurate facts. I would use this book to introduce facts about Puerto Rico in a history class. ( )

This book shows the near extinction of the Puerto Rican Parrots from their homes in the trees. The book shares details of their lives near the people and in their trees, which have been cut down due to deforestation. After the finish of the book, there are real details about what is being done today. The illustrations in this book are especially interesting because they show so much texture, the homes show images of real straw and siding and the parrots appear with real featherlike features.
Genre - Orbis Pictus List.

This book is filled of information about the history of parrots in Puerto Rico. It is cool to see it through a picture book, and the use of color is important too. This book would be really good for 3rd grade through 6th grade readers because of the information and then because of the illustrations. ( )
