Not only does this book have beautiful illustrations but it also has a great moral. While reading this story I thought of many ideas to use this book. This book could be used in a science lesson on habitats of the jungle but the book could also be used on a lesson on endagered animals. This is a wonderfully written text and has many underlying themes!

I did not love this book, but the illustrations are beautiful. This book could be used to introduce a unit of animals of the rain forest or endangered species.
