This captivating mini-musical will capture your young performers' imaginations, as a bevy of birds are given the task of collecting seeds before Fuego, the Mexican god of fire, clears the fields. The Cuckoo single-handedly saves the day, but ends up losing both her colorful feathers and her song, leaving her ashen gray and with only two notes. Learn how she is rewarded by her friends, including Búho the owl, Conejo the rabbit, Topo the mole, and all the birds of the field. It's an uplifting story, teaching both heroism and kindness. Performance time is approximately 20 minutes. The Teacher's Handbook includes reproducible student pages and styling notes, and the Enhanced SoundTrax CD includes reproducible pdf files of student pages and cover art. This book is recommended for grades 2-6.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Received the guitar yesterday afternoon, only 1 day after it shipped UPS ground. It's everything as described and more. Pestered you a couple of times with questions about my order and you were gracious, down to earth, and quick to respond. We can't wait to see our Granddaughter's face when she opens this gift. Would highly recommend your site to anyone."

"I stumbled onto your web site by looking for a specific type of classical guitar string, which you carried. I ordered them yesterday and they arrived just an hour ago, about 24 hours after I placed the order! What fantastic service -- and your prices are very good. I play several string instruments and I will buy all my strings (and other supplies) from you in the future. Thanks for the great work."

"Your service and products are absolutely outstanding! I've used Musician's Friend & Music 123 and they can't touch your firm! It's good to know there's still a musical merchant that cares for its customers! Members of Harmony Central recommend you guys. I read their reviews and I'm glad I did. Thanks again & have a great day!"
