What It Is
Rio 2 One Big Blue Family is a Level Two I Can Read book written by Catherine Hapka and published by HarperCollins. This 32-page book is based on the plot line of the new CG-animated sequel Rio 2, which leads Blu, Jewel, and their kids out of Rio and into the Amazon in search of more Blue Spix' Macaws like them. When they get there they are in for a big surprise and find Jewel's long-lost family. As the story unfolds, Blu struggles to fit in with the other wild birds and leans on his best friends for guidance. In the end, Blu takes their advice and embraces his "wild" side.
Is It Fun?
This is a fun book for beginner readers with familiar characters, colorful full-page illustrations, and a new storyline that will keep kids engaged. And as a Level Two book in Harper's I Can Read series, the language, larger print text, and simple sentence structures make it ideal for readers who are increasingly confident in their skills but still might need some help as they move through the story.
