Parrots
Parrots

Alex sorts through a selection of material before announcing his choice: wool. There's nothing unusual about displaying good taste in fabric—unless you're a parrot! But scientists are discovering that parrots are, in fact, smart enough to make simple choices. Researchers also are discovering that parrots may even understand some of the words they use. In Parrots, children will meet many smart parrots like Alex that are impressing scientists and pet owners alike with their intelligence, clever behavior, and seeming grasp of the English language.
