About this title


Eight-year-old Brian, who is blind, learns how to take care of his new parakeet and comes to realize that his older brother, while sometimes careless, is not so bad after all.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-Brian, a blind child, gets a parakeet for his eighth birthday. He teaches Scratchy to talk and allows him to fly around the house, calling on his grandmother when help is needed to find his pet. His older brother Kevin is very supportive, but like many children, sometimes forgets to shut the door. One day the bird gets out, but fortunately, he only flies to a nearby tree and with Kevin's guidance, Brian is able to coax Scratchy onto his finger and to safety. The perilous open door is foreshadowed in the beginning of the book. This is a simple story featuring a loving African-American family. The brightly colored illustrations show the feelings of the boys and provide particularly good images of the bird. Use this book with Nicola Moon's Lucy's Picture (Dial, 1995) to show how children can lead normal lives even when dealing with a disability.
