Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-- Written and illustrated by a high school student, this environmental ABC presents ecological information for young audiences. Each letter features an animal or plant found in the rain forest with an explanatory paragraph. Interposing her factual material with warnings about endangered species, deforestation, and the harm coming to native peoples, Pratt presents her viewpoint without didacticism. The full-color illustrations done in watercolors, felt markers, and colored pencil show talent and concern. Children may be as interested in the student/author/illustrator concept as in the material presented. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY:

Review

. . . an exceptional book on several counts . . . The book doesn't read like it was written by a child. . . the wording is simple and readable, yet sophisticated. -- The Parent Newsmagazine

A Walk in the Rainforest is an alphabet book written and stunningly illustrated by a 15 year old Kristin Joy Pratt. . . " -- Parent's Magazine

Alliterative phrases combined with interesting information accompany each illustration. This book was a big hit with children of all ages. -- The Reading Teacher

Format: Paperback
A Walk in the Rain Forest is a wonderful introduction to the tropical rain forest- its plants, animals, and people. The book tells the story of XYZ- a small ant- and his journey through the rainforest. The beautiful pictures and simple text appeals to children of all ages. Additional factual information appeals to older children. This is a great book to use in the classroom to help introduce children to the wonders of the rain forest

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Ark Lady (Diana L Guerrero) on December 30, 2002
Format: Paperback
I found this book in my quest for interesting books for a course I was teaching on the rainforest. At the ripe old age of 15, Kristin Joy Pratt (now Pratt-Serafini) developed this lovely book. Her illustrations take you on the journey through the rainforest with XYZ the ant. As the reader explores the ABC's, s/he also learns about the life within and the biodiversity. Words, facts and colorful illustrations will encourage discussion about this habitat and make learning the ABC's and exciting journey.

This is a colorful look at different Rainforest creatures, written by a teenager. It follows a frog introducing animals you might meet in the Rainforest. It is not quite as good as her other book Under the Sea. I would recommend it for 4-8 year olds, it can be wordy.

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
Great way to present some of the flora and fauna of the rainforest to young kids. But the book is an "illustrated alphabet book" and I found some of the animals representing the letters were kind of forced.
