Format: Paperback
Wow. As a fan of mongabay.com I was excited to see what Rhett Butler would do with a children's book. Mixing personal stories of adventures in the rainforest with each section of the book, Butler breaks walks the reader through what rainforest are, why they are important, how they are being destroyed and what people can do to save them. A personal favorite of mine is the section on indigenous people and their use of medicinal plants for healing, the pictures in this portion are particularly interesting. Similar to the kids section of mongaybay.com, the language is simple but the message and stories are engaging. Stories about evading silverback gorillas or searching for rainbow colored lizards with kids in Ecuador will inspire young adventurers and environmentalist making learning pleasurable and exciting. Many of my friends with kids will be getting one of these for Christmas this year as a gift.

This is a really great resource for environmentally-conscious older kids (and their parents) to learn about the rainforest, including why they are important and what is causing them to be destroyed. The beautiful pictures and personal stories really bring rainforests to life and help instill the urgency to save them. Definitely recommended for readers of all ages!

Format: Paperback
A human and realistic view of what the lure of gain can lead to - endangering and destroying the lungs of our planet and all the beauties and treasures that inhabit it; an educational and entertaining work in which pivotal subjects and environmental knowledge are conveyed clearly. Not only is RAINFORESTS perfect for teaching kids, but it is also excellent for heightening public awareness of a true fact: we and our Planet have a commun fate. We cannot hurt one without hurting the other. A must-read-and-re-read book.

This book has amazing photos and well written text. Only downfall is that is might be a better coffee table book than the lengthy literature I was looking for. All in all still a great book describing the wildest place on earth.
