Summary
A comprehensive modern reference book all about rainforests for confident readers.

This book is far more than a collection of bugs and butterflies. It explores rainforests by continent, so the young reader gains first hand experience of the contrasts between the flora and fauna of South America, Africa, and India. It introduces indigenous people who reveal age-old secrets of survival in the forest. It explores how rainforests are exploited for every day products in everyones' homes. The latest research reveals newly discovered creatures unique to this book, and the current threat level to our planet as we continue to destroy Earth's most diverse habitat. Fantastic photos, structured layouts, and age-appropriate vocabulary entice newly confident readers into the world of information books. Data boxes, maps, and stats encourage related numeracy and science skills. Vetted by literacy experts.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "These new titles in the Discover More series live up to their name by simply offering more content than many other similar books. The 80-page length dwarfs comparable series for this age range, and those pages are packed with information and photos. (Looking for even more? An additional digital book is available for free online.) A two-page spread typically includes either one large, stunning photo or at least six smaller ones. This wealth of visuals is deployed strategically and serves the topics well. Rainforest is expansive in scope, covering the flora, fauna, and population of rain forests on multiple continents. The text almost takes a backseat to the countless compelling photos. However, both elements are well organized into three overarching sections, each containing an abundance of subtopics. Because the books are arranged by topic and do not follow a strong narrative, they are especially good for browsing. And although the books cover the basics, the structure allows the books to appeal to readers by emphasizing oddities, especially in the Hall of Fame sections. Fun, educational stuff.--Aronin, Miriam Copyright 2010 Booklist"
