I bought this book to read to my Year 2/3 class and they have really enjoyed it. We have used it for lots of literacy work including describing animals and re-writing the story with their own ideas.

A super storybook to teach children about the jungle!!

HASH(0x8f7c572c) out of 5 stars A delightful introduction to the rainforest 5 Sept. 2010
By J.Prather - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book serves as a delightful introduction to the Amazon Rainforest and is sure to hold the attention of even the youngest of preschool audiences with it's bright colors and well formed verses. The rhymes are very well done as the author introduces a new animal on each spread, beginning with the parrots in the morning and ending with jaguars and otters at night. Also included are some lesser known animals such as pink river dolphins, caimans, and leaf cutter ants. There's an excellent read aloud flow marking this a great choice for themed story times or school units on the Amazon.

The illustrations here are very colorful and packed full of things to look at and enjoy. Slightly older children will gain information from the back sections that include brief descriptions of the peoples of the Amazon, more information about the animals described, and conservation efforts. It's this additional information in conjunction with the charm and beauty of the story itself that mark this as a great resource for both classrooms and young animal lovers. Recommended.

HASH(0x8f39d324) out of 5 stars Nice read-aloud for preschoolers about the rainforest 29 Nov. 2010
By Abby Connors - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I teach preschoolers and I'm always looking for books that can involve them in chanting or singing, to engage them more meaningfully in the story. This book has that, plus delightful illustrations, and very interesting and unusual animals to spark children's curiosity. I'd definitely recommend this book for early childhood professionals who are teaching their classes about the rainforest.
HASH(0x8fb4df9c) out of 5 stars Interactive book for preschoolers 17 Oct. 2014
By Stephanie X. Dileonardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Here's one to get them on their feet and using their bodies. Every page begins with a one word command (jump, crouch, hush, hide...) followed by which animal said it in a 4 line rhyming stanza. It teaches children about the rainforest animals and how they live. I love the map of the Amazon at the end to show where in South America it is. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the rhyming stanzas didn't have a very catchy rhythm. Not a deal breaker, but it doesn't make it a read aloud that kids will ask for again and again. However, if they are given the opportunity to act like each animal, maybe they will.
