A Colorful Guest
Home What's New?
She is a blue-fronted Amazon parrot belonging to Diane McClure.
Molly visited Mejorando el Futuro last fall at the invitation of David Skarra, ESL teacher. Parents, children, and teachers all had a great time meeting her.
Molly's repertoire is quite impressive: She can whistle "Bridge on the River Kwai", sing opera as well as "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" and other songs. Diane says she talks up a storm when left alone.
Although Molly was not in a performing mood when she visited us, it was a real treat to see such a beautiful bird.
This experience provided a way for the children to make the connection between literacy and real life. Back in the classroom, the preschool children talked about their experience and wrote thank-you notes.
