Cotorras sobre Puerto Rico: (Parrots Over Puerto Rico)

By Cindy Trumbore
Illustrated by Susan L. Roth

Paperback: forthcoming

Ebook

Durante siglos, las bellas y escandalosas cotorras puertorriqueñas y los pobladores de la isla de Puerto Rico buscaron alimentos, sobrevivieron a los huracanes, cuidaron su descendencia y protegieron sus casas. Pero las cosas comenzaron a cambiar y, con el tiempo, los árboles donde anidaban las cotorras fueron destruidos. En 1967, solo quedaban veinticuatro cotorras en estado silvestre. Los humanos casi habían causado su extinción. ¿Serían capaces de salvarlas?

Al igual que hicieron en su premiado libro El mangle, Roth y Trumbore cuentan dos historias apasionantes. Ven a descubrir las fascinantes historias entrelazadas de Puerto Rico y de las singulares cotorras que viven en las copas de los árboles de la isla.
