Grammar error

I was surprised to see a huge grammar error in this book. One of the pages reads “Your dad and me” when it should read “your dad and I”. Frustrating when I’ve been trying to reach this to my child.

Because Josh is allowed to get a pet parakeet if he earns the money to buy and care for it, he is a great example of working and saving. I loved that even while trying to earn money, he still took opportunities to help his neighbors without payment. Reading and learning a little about parakeets has made our outings to the aquarium and zoo, which both house parakeets, more interesting.

James thought the part when Josh accidentally pulled a carrot while weeding was kind of funny. He also liked seeing the pictures of different parakeets.

Abbie liked the part when Josh finally gets to go to the store and pick out his parakeet.

My son loved reading this aloud to me. The storyline is engaging for an early reader. It also sparked my son’s interest in birds, and he got excited to learn more about the birds he was hearing about in the book.

Josh wishes he could fly with the birds, but getting his very own bird would be pretty great too! Mom says he can have one if he learns how to take care of birds, and if he earns the money to buy it himself. Josh learns all he can about birds, works hard at his chores, and becomes even better friends with his neighbors, all the while preparing to welcome his new bird home.
