Counting in the Rain Forest

Counting in the Rain Forest

by Fredrick McKissack Jr., Lisa Beringer McKissack

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This nonfiction text is full of colorful, glossy photographs and interesting information about a variety of rain forest plants and animals. It will appeal to readers who are interested in science and rain forest ecology perhaps more than readers who are learning to count. The title is misleading because it implies that this text is for very young readers who are learning about numbers. Although each rain forest plant or animal is labeled with numbered parts, such as four colors of the kookaburra and eight rows of bananas that grow on the banana plant, the numbering feature of this book is the least reader-friendly text element. However, the bold-type text, question and answer format, embedded vocabulary and detailed table of contents and index make this attractive nonfiction offering very appealing. This book, which is part of a four book "Count in the Biomes" series, will be a welcome addition to an elementary school classroom because it is rich with specific detailed information that is aligned with the curriculum standards of the elementary science program.
