This book does a good job of showing children a place that they most likely have never seen before. The pictures are vibrant and colorful and the illustrator does a great job of portraying the rain forest. I also liked this book because it also showed the different animals living in the rainforest and how they all need one another to survive. This another great educational book.

I like the pictures in the book without them it wouldn't be much of a book. I don't find it very informational even tho it does show what different animals and things are in the rainforest. It pretty much just says here's this animal that live in this tree or eats this, it doesn't really go into much detail.

Nice repetitive text with vibrant illustrations. The only thing I found irritating about this book was some very specific vocabulary like "bromeliad," for snake and "caiman" for crocodile. At the end of the book, there is a page that gives the full name of each animal specific to the rain forest and I think that would have been enough.
