Alex & Me

Alex & Me is a delightful story about an African Grey parrot and his owner, Dr. Irene Pepperberg, and the bond they form over thirty years of working together.   Dr. Pepperberg discovered her love of birds as a young child and carried that interest and fascination into her adult life by working with African Grey parrots.   The story while about scientific research is anything but dry, rather is a loving story about some of the accomplishments and obstacles faced by Dr. Pepperberg and Alex.   The stories and interactions about Alex's training were very enjoyable.  I read some of the stories to E & Addy and they laughed and enjoyed them as much I did.
