We don’t always get Cooper’s photos right on the first shot*. Here are some pics that didn’t make the cut.
* Due to the photographer and through no fault of the model, of course.
Charlie lives with Steve and Georgina in the UK.
He is a great little character who loves nothing more than getting out and about and exploring in the house.
He loves the kitchen and showering ‘occasionally’ on top of his favourite bottle.
Charlie likes keeping an eye on passers by as he looks out of the window.
Charlie is 2 years old and has lots of toys including his favourite glitter ball. He is also a talented footballer and smooth talker with quite an extensive vocabulary. His latest phrase is “I’m a tiger.”
You can find more pictures (and videos!) of Charlie on his facebook page, Charlie Budgie Superstar.
This month’s book is Oz-E and Limpy, Let’s Be Friends by Frank Cachia.
Oz-E and Limpy, Let’s Be Friends is the first in a series of books about two little budgies. One day Oz-E notices a new bird in his house. Limpy is a shy bird, who thinks because he limps the other birds will not talk or play with him. Oz-E reassures him that Limpy’s leg will not get in the way of their new friendship.
Cooper loved this little book. Though it was short, it had a great message about not letting differences stand in the way of friendship. She liked that Oz-E looked like Ozzie and that Limp-E looked like Alfie. She thought the illustrations (by Sharyn Madder) were wonderful, and now she wants to read the rest of the Oz-E and Limpy books. Such a little bookworm!
