about

Sarah, Emma's mom, promised to bird-sit Pico for two weeks but soon regrets her decision because the noisy parrot keeps screeching and squawking all day, annoying her family and the neighbors. When Pico makes a mess of Emma's room, Emma gets very angry, but her friends help her. Charlotte notices that Pico seems sad, and Pedro finds out why Pico is shrieking so loudly all the time. The parrot is frustrated because nobody pays attention to him, and nobody understands what he wants.
The purpose of this English and Spanish bilingual book is to show children the beauty of another language, and that learning a new language doesn't have to be boring, it could be fun. The story also delivers a message that when we don't take the time to listen to each other, we tend to judge others quickly before we get to know them.

Sarah, la mamA de Emma, prometiO cuidar de Pico durante dos semanas pero pronto se arrepiente de su decisiOn porque el ruidoso loro se pasa todo el dIa parloteando y chillando, molestando a su familia y vecinos. Cuando Pico desordena la habitaciOn de Emma, ella se enfada mucho pero sus amigos la ayudan. Charlotte se da cuenta de que Pico parece triste y Pedro averigua porquE Pico estA chillando tan alto todo el tiempo. El pAjaro estA frustrado porque nadie sabe lo que quiere ni le presta atenciOn.
La propuesta de este libro bilingUe inglEs y espaNol es mostrar a los niNos la belleza de otra lengua y que aprender un nuevo idioma no tiene que ser aburrido, y puede ser divertido. La historia tambiEn transmite el mensaje de que cuando no nos tomamos tiempo para escucharnos los unos a los otros, tendemos a juzgar rApidamente antes de llegar a conocernos.
