Grade 4-6?The Ituri rain forest of Zaire is the setting for this lovely and informative book. A walk through the area with local farmers and foragers introduces readers to its sights, sounds, and smells. Lush, full-color photographs as well as profiles of the various animals found in this very fragile ecosystem give a realistic impression of the region. Hunting, gathering, and fishing methods of native peoples are explained, as are some of the medicinal uses of the abundant plant life, and the successful coexistence of the people and the natural environment is described. This book will be appreciated by report writers and general readers.?Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY

Gr. 4^-7. Readers gain a real sense of the indigenous people and the extraordinary plant and animal life of the Ituri Forest as they journey with a young boy and his grandparents from their small village to an outlying fishing camp. In addition to the numerous close-ups of forest animals, the book is filled with full-color, captioned photos, making it possible for even young readers and children with reading difficulties to gain an understanding of existence in the Ituri. Children doing research will find not only a glossary, but also an extensive bibliography of materials relating to the Ituri and a list of organizations to contact for more information about rain forests.
