Let's join Jasper and Willie, the Amazon Parrots, in their new adventure in the second book in the series Rainforest Friends and Family: Jasper, Amazon Parrot by Sharon C. Williams. Jasper and Willie have become familiar with the rainforest and once they reach their nest, they tell their mother about the strange creatures they have seen at the edge of the forest. Mother knows Charlie is their friend but she knows this adventure is not safe. Jasper and Willie tell Charlie about their mama's fears. As the story progresses, Willie and Jasper see those humans again, and Charlie takes them to meet his family.
Just like Book 1, this book is about friendship, family bonding, acceptance, coexistence, new responsibilities, more adventure, and helping children be equipped to face problems. The book also captures the sights and sounds of the rainforest and teaches young readers a lot of new things pertaining to the environment. I like the way the author knits information, educational content, and adventure into the plot without sounding boring. There is a sense of urgency and curiosity in the minds of readers as Jasper and Willie explore the rainforest and run into new adventures. It is also interesting to see how Jasper and Willie are growing up and realizing how this means being more responsible. I like the scene where Jasper and Willie go to Charlie's home and see the monkeys picking fleas from each other's fur. It is the best way to help children to accept differences and not judge others for their practices and beliefs.
