Rich in illustrations and knowledge!
The Rainforest Grew All Around Yum, a rainforest cookie recipe, informative sidebars, and luscious illustrations, make this lovely book a keeper! The text by author Susan K. Mitchell is a cumulative rhyme that takes the reader through life in the rainforest from giant trees to tiny insects and frogs. It highlights both plants and animals. Connie McLennan¿s illustrations are both rich and informative. Children will enjoy the variations of subject and texture in the paintings, perhaps discovering small plants and insects not mentioned in the text. The book is a marvelous blend of text and illustration. Besides the recipe there are two matching games at the back. The verse is adapted from the old English cumulative folk song, ¿The Tree In The Wood.¿ Children ages 3 to 7 will delight in this book, which will be enjoyed for years to come in both home and classroom libraries.Was this review helpful?
