Book Description

31 Mar 1998 Deep In The Rain Forest (Book 7)
Provides information on the rainforest flower that smells of rotten meat to attract the flies that pollinate it, and other ways plants and animals rely on each other. There is information on the valuable resources that the rain forests hold, from the coca beans that make chocolate, to the medicinal plant that is helping to treat leukaemia. The text also looks at threats to rainforest trees and plants and what can be done to help. It is one of a series which introduces the rain forest to children who are just starting to read on their own. Each title looks at popular topics studied in schools (for example, transport, resources and environomental threats) as well as topics that should keep the attention of young readers. Each title ends with an activity, which brings the rainforest into the young reader's own experience.
