All children will delight in coloring this delightful story while helping the cockatoo find its way home. All the animals from Costa Rica through Peru, Ecuador, and the Galapagos to Australia will direct the cockatoo. Sometimes the cockatoo does not follow the directions to a “T” and goes out of his way. Luckily, he meets some wonderful animals who redirect him. As the children read (listen as adults read) they will see if he finally makes it home okay. Along the way the children will learn some fun facts about the animals they color as well as some rhyming. How exactly can the great potoo see the cockatoo if it keeps his eyes closed? Is there some secret to his ability to camouflage? This book can also be used by teachers and parents on teaching directions via a compass either on an iPhone or a regular compass. The book ends with a map of part of Central America in which the cockatoo flies to arrive at his home.
