Parrots Over Puerto Rico

By The Horn Book Magazine

This gorgeously illustrated history of the critically endangered Puerto Rican parrot, along with the settlement and development of Puerto Rico, underscores the environmental consequences of human populations on indigenous animal species. . . . With stunning paper-and-fabric artwork on each spread, the book is laid out vertically to best give a sense of height.
