Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-6, younger for reading aloud. This fully illustrated book introduces the tropical rain forest, paying particular attention to the animals living there. Excellent photographs provide close-up views of the creatures, most from Central and South America and the rest from Southeast Asia and Africa. Written in the second person, the brief text carries readers through different times of day, observing the habits of particular animals. Meanwhile, the photos steal the show: a brilliantly colored tree frog clings to a leaf, a grasshopper sits on a leaf, camouflaged to near-invisibility, and a viper seizes and eats a lizard. Though too generalized for research, this still provides vivid glimpses of the rain forest and its inhabitants. (Reviewed November 1, 1997)0792270185Carolyn Phelan"
