Rain Forest Lifeby Janine Scott
How would you handle being rained on every day? Monkeys swing, birds sing, and insects scurry. Learn how animals of the rain forest thrive in wet weather.
Children's Literature - Elizabeth YoungFrom warm and steamy to cool and leafy, rain forests are teeming with life. Follow along and learn about the four layers of every rain forest. From the forest floor oozing with ants and beetles to the emergent layer with majestic eagles and delicate butterflies, rain forests offer a home to millions of creatures. Large, colorful photographs augment the brief, yet informative text on the opposite page; the trademark of works in the "Pebble Plus: Habitats Around the World" series. Those alone will lure you in. Are you able to find the stick insect on p. 13? Without reading a word, one has a sense of the diversity within this habitat, and a desire to find out more. That is easy enough to do, as "Fun Facts," a glossary, and suggestions for further reading and Internet exploring are included at the back of the book. A truly informative and interesting work that will be welcomed in all libraries, or for anyone delving into research about rain forests. Reviewer: Elizabeth Young
