questions in hebrew" for Passover. The Parrot is the only one who has time to listen to her. I feel like this is a common yet exceptional example of the connection people feel with their pets. They are never mad at you, and always willing to listen. The parrot also ends up learning the four Hebrew questions as he repeats the little girl every time she practices. The girl finally gets a chance to recite them at a big family dinner but the parrot causes a little ruckus before she is finished. With the help of her family problems are resolved and she gets to go on reciting and does perfectly. This makes her father extremely proud.
