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.
