Olinguito Speaks Up
On August 2013, scientists announced the discovery of a new species of mammal called the olinguito, described as a cross between a cat and a furry teddy bear. The rust-colored furry mammal weighs just two pounds. About 14 inches long–with an equally bushy tail–the olinguito lives amid the misty treetops and giant tomato-size figs in the Andean cloud forests of Ecuador and Colombia. Reading Level Ages 7-10. Available in hardcover, ebook, and as a game app.

Lalo Loves to Help
Lalo, a yellow-naped Amazonian parrot speaks many languages and loves to sing opera. He lives a happy live according to the Amazonian oath of friendship.

On the day they all plan to perform an opera, Lalo is summoned downriver to translate the words of an elderly lady. Could this be the forgotten language of the Teteté people?
Will Lalo and his friends rise to the occasion––or will the ancient songs of the Ecuadorian Amazon be lost forever?
