PRODUCT INFORMATION

Description

Macaws squawk, snakes coil, and monkeys swing. Follow true-to-size rain forest animals as they journey through a noisy, colorful ecosystem like no other on Earth. Bright, realistic illustrations of a busy Amazon rain forest depict a plethora of creatures, all drawn to size, going about their daily lives, from a family of three-toed sloths to a foldout of an anteater. Accompanying the rich artwork are descriptions of the animals that reveal their habits and relationship to this vital habitat. All the spreads fit together into a panorama of all four layers of an Amazonian rainforest. A key that shows how the pages smartly fit together so that readers can retrace their journey is also included. Over half the world's plant and animal species live in tropical rain forests such as the Amazon. Protecting rain forests from the devastating effects of logging, mining, and climate change is essential to ensure the survival of so many fascinating creatures. A description of the four layers of the rainforest, an index, a map of rainforests worldwide, and a section on protecting rain forests are included. Budding conservationists will love immersing themselves in one of the most biodiverse places on the planet.

Critic Reviews

“"Readers must search the images for the creatures introduced in the text and will be captivated by the myriad hues and intricate detail used in each one. To make room for the anteater, two pages fold out, immersing readers even more deeply into this multifaceted world. Paragraphs of accessible text give readers a wealth of facts about each animal in the book, the names of which stand out in colorful, bold letters. . . . This is an important addition to elementary school nonfiction”
