Beaky's Guide to Caring for Your Bird by Isabel Thomas


Beaky's Guide to Caring for Your Bird by Isabel Thomas

Titles in the Pets' Guides series teach young readers how to care responsibly for their chosen pet. However, in a unique spin, each book is written from the point of view of one of the animals themselves, thus also allowing the books to be used to teach perspective. In this book, Beakie the Budgie reveals how readers should go about choosing a pet bird, what supplies they will need, how to make a new pet bird feel at home, and how to properly care for a pet bird, including feeding, exercising, and keeping a bird cage clean. Text in the book is accompanied by clear, labelled photographs to further reinforce key concepts.
