Christ Statue, Brazil
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Rio de Janeiro is a city in Brazil. It is called Rio for short. There is a small park in Rio called Tijuca Forest.
 
2     Tijuca Forest is special because it wasn't always a forest. Years ago, the trees were cut down. That made way for large coffee farms. Later, people decided they wanted the forest back. So they replanted it. They planted thousands of trees. Then Rio had a beautiful forest inside the city. The new forest became home to many kinds of plants and animals. It is helping to save endangered species.
 
3     Tijuca Forest is now a park. It has places to relax, enjoy nature, and play. It has places to hike and picnic. It also has a mountain - Corcovado Mountain.
 
4     Corcovado Mountain is about 700 meters tall. A small red train runs up the mountain. It carries tourists almost to the top. The train runs every half hour. The trip takes about twenty minutes.
 
5     Every year 300,000 tourists take the trip to the top of Corcovado Mountain. Why do so many people go there?
