Let's Take Care of Our New BudgerigarBook - 2008
"Adopting animals as pets is an exciting and happy occasion for boys and girls, but it also brings children responsibilities. In this entertaining story, Alice, Peter, and their parents adopt a very pretty pair of budgerigars. As the children learn to care for these handsome birds, they come to realize that pets are not toys. They learn that animals must be treated well and made to feel both safe and comfortable in their new home. This book describes activities that children and their parents can share as they take care of budgerigars, and also includes advice from a veterinarian on proper care of these birds"--P.  of cover.
