Salas invites readers to explore the rainforest through a variety of forms that make clever use of familiar poetry devices. In addition, she weaves information into her verses making this collection both entertaining and informative. Colorful, crisp photographs pair well with the text and make this book a treat for both ear and eye.

This poetry book contains real photos taken of the rainforest. It has poems about animals, habitats, and scientists. I appreciate that it also has the language of poetry, glossary, internet sites, and an index at the back of the book.
Has real pictures from the Rain Forest! Includes the animals, food, tree top scientist, mbuti boy, and many other cool things.
