The Adventures of Camellia N.; The Rainforest
The Adventures of Camellia N. The Rainforest is the third in a series of environmentally-focused educational storybooks targeted to young readers 5-9. In this extraordinary expedition, Camellia N. awakens deep in the jungle, guided by her newest furry friends...a peculiar GIANT otter named Otto, along with quirky cotton-top tamarin, QTipp and Jacki, a jaguar who just happens to be vegan. Camellia N. discovers that the rainforest is home to half of the species of plants and wildlife on our planet and learns the critical role that rainforests play in our planet’s climate.
