Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
This book offers a cumulative, lyrical view of a wet, green community. Rich paintings by Michael Rothman show how the bromeliad, sloth, rain, and rivers make up this "lush and wet world." Children will want to imitate Rothman's artwork by creating their own images of the rain forest or other environments using watercolor paints and/or pastel chalks. Teachers can use large plastic drink bottles for planting miniature terraria simulating rain forests in the classroom.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Dunphy describes the creatures, plants and conditions in a tropical rain forest. Fabulous illustrations occupy two-thirds of each spread and visually depict what the text describes. The pages are bordered in green and the text is set against a light green textured background. The lushness of the rain forest permeates every scene. The last page provides the names of the pictured animals and call for help in protecting tropical rain forests. 1997 (orig.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-This cumulative tale starts in the rain forest, adds creatures great and small, and ends with the rain that fills the rivers. Rothman's lovely illustrations, done in the lush greens of the wet tropics, accompany the sing-song verses that mimic ``The House that Jack Built.'' Although the format is meant to reinforce the interdependence of life in these special areas of the world, the rhymes have mainly to do with hunting and stalking and do not really show the ecological balance of these areas. The last page names some of the animals shown in the text and suggests that the National Wildlife Federation be contacted in order to help save these threatened lands. As a picture book, this title serves to illustrate some of the rain forest's creatures and to acquaint children with this important part of the world, but it does not provide much factual information.-Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY
