A noteworthy review of Animals of the Rain Forest from School Library Connection on November 1, 2015

All the ingredients that create a usable easy reference series can be found in these informative books. Vivid detailed photographs show the animals of the rain forest. First, students meet the animals and are given descriptions to recognize them. They also learn about their homes, their food, their social structure, their young, and their futures. In each of these books, the importance of taking care of the environment and, therefore, taking care of the animal is emphasized. Each page includes sidebars to impart more detailed information which supports the short paragraph on the page. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index.
