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.

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 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.
