Featured Book of the Month

Parrots Over Puerto Rico Parrots Over Puerto Rico By: Susan Roth & Cindy Trumbore Age Level: 6-9 Reading Level: Independent Reader

Puerto Rican parrots, once abundant, came perilously close to extinction in the 1960s due to centuries of foreign exploration and occupation, development, and habitat destruction. In this compelling book, Roth and Trumbore use collage illustrations and a unique format to recount the efforts of the scientists of the Puerto Rican Parrot Recovery Program to save the parrots and ensure their future.
