Brian, a little blind boy, receives a parakeet for his 8th birthday. He names his new pet, Scratchy, and teaches him to talk. One day Brian’s stupid brother leaves the door open and Scratchy flies away! Will Brian get Scratchy back? Read the book and find out!
Cooper loved this book, even though the parakeet was green and not blue.
You can’t teach parakeets to talk. What a crappy book.
Adam is right, there are lots of Youtube videos of budgies talking. We’re not teaching Cooper to talk (as I’ve probably mentioned before, it’s creepy).
If Cooper learns to talk on his own, will you be an accepting and loving parent or cast him out to fend for himself?
I will love him forever, whether he creeps me out or not.
He’s black and blind. Therefore, he can help people (and birds) to anything.
yes you can.
It’s good to see that Cooper is accepting of all parakeet races.
