Friendly Feathers: Life with Pierre, An African Grey Parrot
by Dr. Fran Smith

Friendly Feathers
Parents don’t need to be reminded that kids have a vivid imagination. They love to pretend, for instance, that their pets are smarter than parents think they are.
In some cases, that might be true. In the children’s book,

“Friendly Feathers: Life with Pierre, an African Grey Parrot” by Dr. Fran Smith, illustrated by Deon Matzen, your child will love the true story of a bird who was definitely no bird-brain.

Pierre the parrot starts the day by asking his friend, Bob, how the stock market is doing. Pierre likes to take showers, talk to Fran, make Cosette the dog sit, and he enjoys eating spaghetti. Pierre can tell you if it’s raining and he asks for treats when he’s hungry. At night, when it’s time for bed, he puts his head under his wing and goes to sleep.

This cute book will make kids smile, particularly if they’ve spent time with a pet bird or are fascinated with birds at the park or back yard. It’s quick to read, the illustrations are cute, and kids will eagerly fly over to the bookshelf to have another read-aloud.
