Feathers At Las Flores
Feathers At Las Flores - Storybook
Fly into Miami Beach and meet a parrot who talks too much. People never stop talking, do they? And from his perch at Las Flores café, Feathers hears every word — and repeats a good deal of what he hears. The problem is, the words sometimes get a little jumbled up, turned around, stretched out of shape. That's what happens 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 palm trees and blue ocean waters in Miami Beach, Florida. Andra Chase has depicted a kaleidoscope of local color and characters in her sunny watercolor illustrations. The Feathers at Las Flores teaching guide offers dozens of cross-curriculum activities. Your students will learn about exotic pets, play the rumor game, make plans for a Florida vacation trip, and much more.
Feathers at Las Flores will help you:
- Demonstrate the hazards of repeating personal, sensational, or unfounded information
- Introduce facts about parrots and other tropical birds
- Present information about the state of Florida
