People never stop talking do they?And from his perch at Las Flores cafe, Feathers hears every word- and repeats a good deal of what he hears.

The problem is that the words sometimes get a little jumbled up, turned around, stretched out of shape.

That's what happens one morning when Julio finds a ten dollar bill on the sidewalk. By the end of the day- and with the help of the talkative Feathers- Julio's bit of good luck has grown to immense proportions- at least in the minds of the regulars at Las Flores.

Feathers' misadventures take place within sight of the palm trees and blue ocean waters of Miami Beach, Florida. Illustrator Andra Chase's sunny water colors depict a kaleidoscope of local color and characters, not least the multi-hued, madcap Feathers.

Author Linda Talley's comic story about a parrot determined to keep up his end of the conversation will remind readers of the children's game of "gossip," where what goes in one ear is not always what comes out the mouth. It will give readers young and old a moment's pause to consider the hazards of hearsay and the unreliability of rumor.

Review:

My childrenâ ¦wanted to replay the Feathers at Las Flores DVD as often as possible. The book and video are high quality and colorful with a charming story about a parrot who talks too much. With the help of the teacher's buide, you could easily turn this kit into a month-long unit study. The teacher's guide includes ideas for math, science, vocabulary and more. --The Old Schoolhouse

Key Concepts kits are excellent materials for our elementary curriculum. A child can build on the message of each story to become a truly ethical person. This is one of the most beautiful productsâ ¦ the format, the colors, the naturalness, the kind looks on the faces of the animal characters... everything is so appealing and appropriate for our students. --Carol Alley, Director of School-to-Work, Mercer County Schools

I have previewed a number of guidance related materials during the last 17 years. Never have I been this excitedâ ¦ You have touched a speical spark with your creative, motivating, beautiful stories. --Genie byrd, counselor, Keheley Elementary School, Marietta, GA
