About the Author:

Gail Gibbons, author of more than one hundred books, is the winner of the Washington Post/Children’s Book Guild Award for her overall contribution to children’s nonfiction literature. Called a “master of picture book nonfiction” by ALA Booklist, Ms. Gibbons has a special talent for making complex subjects understandable and entertaining for young readers.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-5. We're off to the rain forest in Gibbons' newest addition to her nonfiction library. With the simple style and bold format that characterize her books, Gibbons not only explains the complex ecosystem of tropical rain forests and their importance to the global ecology, but also explores related issues concerning the preservation and protection of the forests as natural resources. Bright, colorful watercolor panels with labeled elements are laid out with the text, and each layout is framed by the leafy green vine of a rain forest flower. Gibbons does not designate the specific rain forests in the illustrations (a problem because some of the exotic animals pictured are native only to tropical rain forests on certain continents), but her focus seems generally to be on Latin American regions, such as the Amazon and the Caribbean rain forests where she did her research for this book. Packed with visual information that complements the easy and informative text, this is a good, basic introduction to a complex and popular subject for the youngest researchers. Annie Ayres
