Overview

Imaginations will soar from the forest floor, up through the canopy and back down again, following the circle of life in this clever adaptation of the song The Green Grass Grew All Around." The jungle comes alive as children learn about a wide variety of the animals (jaguars, emerald tree boas, leafcutter ants, sloths, poison dart frogs, toucans, and bats) and plants (kapok trees, liana vines, and bromeliads) living in the lush Amazon rainforest. Delve even deeper into the jungle using sidebars and the three-page For Creative Minds" educational section.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Both lyrical verses and classical illustrations abound in this nonfiction book that begins with a seed on the ground. Plants and animals are added one at a time, and each verse ends with "and the rainforest grew all around, all around, the rainforest grew all around." The cumulative tale depicts vines, a snake, an ant, a sloth, and other interesting creatures and plants until the ending completes the cycle with a seed that flies out of a pod. Sidebars contain several facts about each plant and animal. A "For Creative Minds" section at the end provides sentences to be matched with the pictures. More matching questions discuss seeds and how they spread. Readers are invited to download pages from the publisher's website rather than writing or coloring in the book itself. The last page discusses things we use and eat that come from the rainforest. A recipe for "Rainforest Cookies" is given, with ingredients that were produced from crops grown in the rainforest written in bold print. The tones of greens and browns with contrasting yellows and reds provide beautiful paintings that enhance and complement the poetic writing and interesting factual material.
