Is there anything more satisfying for a child than repeating every word their parents say, just like a parrot? Here they can do exactly that, along with three adorable little parrots. Each new page of this joyful book offers children the fun of repeating the line that was just read on the previous page and then discovering a new line that completes the rhyme. Just like the catchy sentences, the colorful graphic shapes appear, reappear, evolve, and transform to create an unexpected adventure full of funny effects. A final surprise brings young readers right back to the beginning, ready for another round of parrot-like repetitions.
