From simple questions like "Where are tropical rain forests?" to complex ones like "What happens to plants, animals, and people as rain forests disappear?", this book delivers the answers kids want.
Q: Does it always rain in the rain forest? A: Yes. You can count on some rain just about every afternoon in a tropical rain forest. In this colorful introduction to tropical rain forests, kids will learn all about the animals, plants, and people that live together in this complex ecosystem. Readers will find out that the leaves of one rain forest tree can be 70 feet long, that humming birds fly like helicopters, and that the okapi has a 14-inch black tongue!Publisher: Scholastic USA
