Our first stop on the Fall 2014 Blog tour is About Parrots!  John and Cathryn Sill deliver the latest in this acclaimed series showcasing the natural world of parrots.

Through simple language and beautifully detailed paintings, this guide describes the characteristics of different types of parrots – from the colorful Blue Lorikeets of the Polynesian Islands to the Rosy-faced Lovebirds of southwestern Africa.

Kirkus Reviews calls this “uniquely attractive work…an appealing and comprehensive introduction” for readers ages 3-8.  The information is masterfully “portrayed in clear, vivid watercolor illustrations with a simple text describing physical characteristics and habitats.” 
Here is the tour schedule:
Monday 8/4- JeanLittle Library
Tuesday 8/5- GeoLibrarian and Kid Lit Reviews
Wednesday 8/6- Chat with Vera
Thursday 8/7- Blue Owl and Kid Lit Frenzy
