Bem-vindo ao Brasil!

Welcome to Brazil!



The first in the Brazil series of Pack-n-Go Girls travel adventure books, Mystery of the Troubled Toucan, takes girls to the amazing country of Brazil. If you’ve read “What to Know Before You Go” in the back of the book, you already know a little about Brazil. Here are a few more interesting photos Sofia captured on her recent trip to Manaus and the Anavilhanas Archipelego area of the Amazon rainforest. And scroll down for more interesting information about Brazil!

Sofia’s Tour of Brazil
  • This is the Amazon River at the meeting of the waters, Encontro das Águas. The dark water is the Rio Negro. The sandy-colored water is the Rio Solimões.

  • Here is a dolphin swimming in the Rio Negro. I loved the pink dolphins, or botos.

  • Here's a picture of the Troubled Toucan - squawking as usual.

  • Here is a school in Brazil. What's the same as your school? What's different?

  • Here is another school - right on the river!

  • The nights were beautiful. An noisy. It sounded like all the animals were trying to sing at once, like in a chorus. I wonder which animal was the conductor?

  • The sloths were really sloooooow.

  • The poison dart frogs made me nervous. But Julia said it was hard to get poisoned by them.

  • I really didn't like the tarantulas. Scary!

  • I found a nice picture of the beach we went to, Praia do Forte.

  • And I took a picture of the Lazy Loggerhead so I could remember her.

  • These are some of the nests that are being protected.
