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.
