This news is from Brazil. A bird builds a nest in a tree. It lays two eggs in the nest. The tree becomes a Christmas tree. The eggs hatch.

A family has the tree at home. They are surprised when they see the birds. They leave the windows and doors open. The birds can move freely.

The little birds are getting bigger. Soon, they will leave the nest.

Difficult words: nest (a bird’s home), hatch (come out of an egg), will (“in the future”).
