"Lucky" Children's Book

Lucky is an educational book that gently awakens children to the plight of captive birds and birds captured in the wild. Based on a true story, Lucky tells the tale of a parrot who is captured in the wild and eventually regains his freedom with the help of a young Indonesian boy.

Entirely funded by generous grants, this beautifully illustrated book is printed on recycled, chlorine-free paper to protect the environment and the world’s forests. What’s more, 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefit avian welfare, rescue and conservation — $9 goes directly to the Avian Welfare Coalition and the remainder supports the avian welfare efforts of Born Free USA.

The story is also a natural fit for a wider educational curriculum including geography and culture of Indonesia, the natural history, behavior and physical characteristics of parrots and tropical forest ecosystems, as well as real-life conservation efforts. The dedicated website www.LuckyTheLorikeet.com incorporates all these topics. In addition, children can meet the real Lucky in a narrated documentary video clip available on the website — truly a rare and inspiring opportunity!(To watch the video, click "The Real Lucky" on Lucky's dedicated website.
