Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Two young kids (Dick and Sally) dressed in yellow rain slickers travel to a tropical rain forest with the magical cat. They learn about the different kinds of rain forests and about the process called transpiration whereby plants lose moisture that rises into the air and then falls back down on the plants as rain. A tropical rain forest has four distinct sections each with different types of plants and creatures. The lower treetops, which comprise the third section, is the most crowded. The pages are crammed with plants and animals that live there and labels identify what readers are looking at. As the text points out, some animals spend their whole lives here and never touch the ground. After a tour of the four sections, the book concludes with a plea to help preserve the rain forests, which are rapidly disappearing. The book contains a glossary, further reading list and an index. Part of the "Cat in the Hat's Learning Library" series. 2003, Random House, Ages 7 to 10.
