|IN A PARROT'S SHOES by Mindy Wilson
Reviewer: Jennifer LB Leese, http://www.geocities.com/ladyjiraff

As a story that any child or adult can relate to, Wilson's book comes
highly recommended by this reviewer. The main character doesn't like
being like everyone else—she likes being original. Mindy soon befriends Megan, but
soon the two begin to see things differently when Megan starts to
mimic—parrot—everything that Mindy does. With advice from her mom,
Mindy's anger turns to open-mindedness and soon they begin to appreciate
each other's differences. This book is a wonderful teaching tool for children
in showing them the importance of allowing friends to be different, as
everyone is special in their own way. The watercolor illustrations
flatter the inspiring story while adding a touch of character.
