Guiberson creates a unique nonfiction narrative about life in a rainforest. She personifies the rainforest animals and their habitats, so that children can experience a new world. She captures the reader’s attention by giving very accurate details and making it kid-friendly. Great writing!
I loved this book because it is the first one I have read which could easily spurt a discussion on how to observe animals, which will lead into how scientists make observations. I would also use this book in a third grade classroom to talk about habitats or characteristics of animals.

really cute and informative at the same time. Some of the words might be hard for a person learning how to read, I didn't even know how to pronounce some of them because they were specific species types. Steve Jenkins is the illustrator.

I just love the language in thsi book, especially the strong verbs. The words paint a picture of the rainforest habitat, and the art is a perfect compliment.
