Publisher's Summary

Preparing for My First Cockatiel is a beginner's guide book for you and your children to help you know what it takes to get ready for bringing home your very first cockatiel. Unlike most books about cockatiels out there, this one doesn't try to cover everything but stays focused on what you need to be ready for your new life with your bird.

Full of personal stories and photos via the included pdf supplement, you will get to know what life with cockatiels is like from my many years living with and loving them. A fun book for anyone who loves animals!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A lovely guide

This is a very thorough and compassionately written guide.

I learned A LOT about birds that I never knew.

The terrible narration did not take away the obvious love Ms. Rockefeller has and education for others regarding her birds.

Well-written, informative, and well-read

This is a well-written, excellent and informative read. It's very obvious the author has done her research well, and cares a lot about birds. Not only that, but it's also presented in such a way as to make it easy to follow, regardless of how old you might be; if you're old enough to be responsible for the care of a pet like a Cockatiel, you're old enough to be able to read and understand this book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone thinking of getting a Cockatiel, or those who - like me - are simply interested in what goes in to the proper care of a pet Cockatiel.

I would also like to add that I listened to the audio version of this book, and think the narrator was an excellent choice, since he has a wonderful and clear voice, which is both easy to understand and pleasant to listen to.

*NOTE: I was given a free copy of this book by the author. This fact has in no way influenced either my opinion of the book - or its narrator - nor the contents of this review; all opinions expressed in this review are my own.
