I loved this book. One of my favorite things about this book is the inside covers that expose children to a world map showing the locations of rain forests. I think it's so important that children be able to relate and identify what they are learning about. Also, I love that this book brings a fun yet powerful recognition to the rain forest and it's importance. It could easily be used cross-curriculum in reading, science, geography and even math with graphing the heights of trees in the rain forest.
