Editorial Reviews

From the Author

From the artist, Laura Regan: This was the very first book that I illustrated and the first time that I painted with gouache (opaque water color). I really enjoy working with this medium because it allows me to include a lot of small detail work. The entire process of creating artwork for a children's book is tremendously rewarding for me. I look at each project as a new adventure! Because all of the books that I have illustrated focus on the environment, I feel that they are a wonderful way to help to teach young readers about our beautiful but fragile planet. I'd love it if you came to visit me at my Laura Regan website where you can learn more about my work. If you are interested, you can also arrange for a school visit.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3-- Yolen explores a tropical rain forest in an entrancing poem full of internal rhyme, alliteration, and evocative images. "But it is not all green/ in the hot green house:/ a flash of blue hummingbird,/ a splash of golden toad,/ a lunge of waking lizards,/ a plunge of silver fish . . . ." These are only a few of the many creatures that the author catalogs and Regan depicts in her lush gouache paintings. The illustrations include all of the animals mentioned in the brief text, but readers are left to their own devices to identify the extra treats the artist includes. Ideal for introducing rain forest ecology in the primary grades, this book may be also be used by preschool teachers. Its many animal sounds and closeup views of snakes, sloths, and primates will perfectly suit their inquisitive students. A page of remarks about the continuing destruction of tropical rain forests and an address where youngsters may write to obtain information about preserving them is appended. The next best thing to a guided tour. --Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, CT grades 3-6

I felt that this was a wonderful book. I read this book to a third grade classroom and they all loved the story. They especially loved the illustrations. I loved the way all the animals seemed to blend in with with the plants. I would recommend this book to everyone. This book is a must see for all children and adults.

I got this book to go with a unit for homeschooling. We're secular homeschoolers, so I was disappointed reading the totally unnecessary parts that were pro-Bible. I'll still use it, because I need it for the unit, but I'll have to edit those parts out. I really wish it would have been more about Amazon shamans, versus sneaking Christianity in, and not even in a way that really made sense.

My little boy has had this book for a couple of years and it is still a favorite. He loves looking a the pictures and learning about the rainforest animals. I love how colorful the pictures are and how well the story flows when you read it.
