'They were flying their kite loop-the-loop up high, when something emerald flickered by...'
Join Jack and Emily as they explore a world of hidden animals, birds and minibeasts in search of one very special creature...
Parrots Don't Live in the City! is a beautifully crafted hide-and-seek picture book, designed to encourage children to pause and notice nature all around them.
It's perfect for young readers aged two to six years. Written in rhyming couplets, it encourages aural and oral development through rhyme and repetition, whilst the charming narrative promotes close observation and inquisitiveness. Our ‘Minibeast Nature Trail’ and ‘Parroty Fun’ page encourage families not only to read together, but to learn and play together too.
The book features hand-drawn illustrations by Jenna Herman, with washes of oil, watercolour, acrylic and pastel on mixed textured surfaces, and is printed on the highest quality FSC certified paper stock, to ensure that it looks and feels beautiful whilst being kind to the environment.
