Pages: 32
Reading Level: Beginner
Star Rating: ★★

I don’t have much to say about this book which should indicate that the book had little to say for itself. Beautiful, brilliant pictures are included of multiple rainforest scenes – iguanas, sloths, toucans, and ocelots skitter here and there – but they only receive a passing description.

On the last page the goal of the book – to encourage rainforest preservation – is stated, and makes the style of the book (which emphasized the beauty, rather than the scientific interest of rainforests) more understandable.

Conclusion. So-so – even Jean Craighead George’s One Day in the Tropical Rainforest is better.
