Description

The rainforest is home to millions of plant and animal species. Some animals live high up in the trees, some crawl across the forest floor, and some tunnel underground, but they all depend on one another and the rain to survive. With colorful illustrations and fascinating diagrams from author-illustrator Kate Duke, In the Rainforest is a lively look at the most vibrant ecosystem on our planet. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

This is a Stage 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.



Praise For In the Rainforest (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)

"In this appealing picture book, two children tour a rain forest, while their friendly guide fills them in on matters such as leaf-cutter mounds, epiphytes, rainfall, and forest layers. Like the original Magic School Bus books, this upbeat volume offers information through clearly written paragraphs of text, characters’ comments in speech balloons, and illustrated fact boxes. An inviting book that conveys concepts simply and effectively. This informative volume from the dependable Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out science series offers an uncommonly readable introduction to rain forests. Instructions for making a terrarium are appended."
