Description
Imaginations will soar from the forest floor, up through the canopy and back down again, following the circle of life in this clever adaptation of the song -The Green Grass Grew All Around.- The jungle comes alive as children learn about a wide variety of the animals (jaguars, emerald tree boas, leafcutter ants, sloths, poison dart frogs, toucans, and bats) and plants (kapok trees, liana vines, and bromeliads) living in the lush Amazon rainforest. Delve even deeper into the jungle using sidebars and the three-page -For Creative Minds- educational section.
