Reading written in past tense tells the interesting story of Presley, one of the few remaining blue Spix Macaws and a veterinarian's attempt to return him to his native Brazil. Presley's story inspired the movie Rio.
This reading would work well for a Spanish 2 or 3 class and is an excellent accompaniment for the movie Rio or the novel Robo en la noche.
