From Booklist:

Reviewed with Edward Parker's Rain Forest Mammals.

Gr. 5-9. Parker's amazing close-up color photographs of animals in the wild will draw a wide audience for these extra-large books in the Rain Forest series, and the attractive magazine design, with clear type and lots of boxes and subheads, will keep readers browsing. Each book discusses the animal groups, their diverse habitats, and the urgent need for preventing the rain forests from being destroyed. Along with general issues are fascinating facts about individual creatures, from the fringed gecko of Madagascar to the eyelash viper of South and Central America. Parker's focus is on the Amazon rain forest, but he includes wonderful, detailed examples from across the world (though he's not quite at home in Africa's rain forest, since he makes the mistake of placing tigers there). Young ecologists will be hooked by the zoology and by the global cause, whether the threat is from water pollution, forest clearing, or the market for animal skins. Each book has a lengthy glossary, a short bibliography, and a list of organizations. Hazel Rochman
