From the Back Cover

"Bound to excite would-be scientists and browsers alike."--ALA Booklist. It's teeming with life--many kinds of life. Giant cats and skittish bats. Squawking parrots and upside-down sloths. Even the trees seem animated, with their long, loopy vines. From its earth floor to the top of the tree canopy, the tropical rain forest has more things living in it than any other habitat on earth. Stunning drawings, step-by-step experiments, fun activities, and fascinating facts abound in this magical exploration on an essential ecosystem--which may now be in danger of disappearing forever. With this book, you can explore one small square of rain forest in a zoo...as a nature preserve...or at home. This is a welcome new addition to the critically acclaimed One Small Square and nature series for children ages 6 to 9. This book includes: stunning full-color illustrations of the habitat and its creatures; motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips; a picture field guide to the habitat; a glossary-index and resource list. One Small Square puts the whole world in perspective for children, one small square at a time. Each book is a thrilling, up-close encounter with the natural world; from the stars above us to the habitats, ecosystems, and creatures around us.

The One Small Square series is wonderful: the concept is that you take a hypothetical square foot of an environment- woods, seashore, arctic tundra, rainforest, etc.- and explore it at all levels, from underground to the sky. Each book is extensively illustrated with all of the inter-connected layers of life- from fungus to megafauna- in the Square. On the margin of most of the 2-page spreads are activities that you can do, no matter where you live. Food chains, life cycles & seasons are explored, and the back section has an identification guide to all of the life forms presented in the book.
We took One Small Square: Tropical Rain Forest with us on a trip to the Brazilian rainforest with our 5 & 7 year olds. The book was great- for the grown ups & the kids! We used it as a guide to identify many of the animals & plants we saw, as background to help the girls understand what they were going to see, as reading on the long trips up the river. We did many of the activities- some before, some during, and some after the trip. Our guide was so impressed with it that he ordered a copy for himself, saying that it was hard to find something with so much information that was both accurate and interesting to people at many different levels of knowledge. Highly recommended!

Love all of these books! We have most or all of them and they are a wonderful addition to our homeschool library. This is a wonderful way to explore biomes. "Biomes are very large ecological areas on the earth’s surface, with fauna and flora (animals and plants) adapting to their environment. Biomes are often defined by abiotic factors such as climate, relief, geology, soils and vegetation. " - These books are excellent for teaching your children all the plants and animals and flora and fauna in these biomes. Lots of beautiful images and illustrations and descriptions. It's not only a book with facts but it also tells a story. So lovely and yet informative. My son loves them. They fit great into our homeschool library. Most of our "curriculum" consists of books just like this. This is so much better than a text book or work sheets. This allows the kids to really get into the subject matter and immerse themselves in it and enjoy and love it. I would say these are great from about age 5-10/12

Look for the other books in this series you can't go wrong with a collection of these fabulous books in your classroom or homeschool library.
