Tropical birdwatcher Karen will next take the children on a magical virtual journey where they will learn the legend of a tiny hummingbird who becomes King of Guatemala. The program concludes with a fast moving, interactive game of Jungle Jumble where pairs of children try to reconstruct these exotic birds from puzzle pieces and match them with their correct bird songs.
