Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307201635, Paperback)

A vibrant introduction to the plants, animals, birds, and insects that inhabit these extraordinary ecosystems. Plenty of photographs and "gee- whiz" facts - the sloth sleeps 80% of its life; hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards - will keep kids coming back for more. , , Spread by colorful spread this book explores the many layers of the world's rain forests. Following a logical path of information from the general to the specific, topics cover what and where rain forests are, the incredible plant-life (the rafflesia's flower grows up to 4 feet wide and weigh up to 25 pounds!), amazing animals, birds, and insects, jungle predators, life in the rivers, and animal calls. All of this in an engaging, vibrant, and fun format with plenty of gee-whiz facts (the sloth sleeps 80% of its life, hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards) that will keep kids coming back again and again.
