Happy Birthday, Robo en la noche!
In Robo en la noche, we follow the journey of 15-year-old Makenna Parker as she moves to Costa Rica with her dad. She had reservations about her father’s new job in Costa Rica, but little did she know that missing her home and her friends would be the least of her worries. She finds herself in the middle of an illegal bird-trading scheme, and it becomes a race against time for her father to save her and the treasured macaws.
Some of the Robo en la noche updates include a new cover and an updated comprehensive glossary, as well as the addition of a flip book format, with both past and present tense versions under one cover. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the release of Robo en la noche, we are proud to reveal to you a newly-enhanced 495-page 2019 Premium Teacher’s Guide! Whether you are teaching the present tense or past tense version of this comprehension-based reader, the Premium Teacher’s Guide has been designed to be a comprehensive unit when used together with the reader.
