This month’s book is Trick or Treat Parakeet by Lesley Sims.
Parakeet is getting ready for Halloween. She has all sorts of fun activities planned – entering a pumpkin carving contest, decorating Halloween treats and trick or treating. But nothing seems to go as anticipated. Will Parakeet have the Happy Halloween she planned?
Cooper thought this book was absolutely charming. She loved the colorful, whimsical illustrations (by David Semple).
She thought it was wonderful that despite some setbacks, Parakeet rallied and had a fun Halloween with her friends – she even won 1st place in the pumpkin carving contest.
Trick or Treat Parakeet is told using phonics, which is a wonderful way to teach young children how to read. This book also has a QR code so readers are able to hear all about Parakeet’s fun-filled Halloween.
