9780977379514: Here Is the Tropical Rain Forest (Web of Life)

Lyrical words and lush, naturalistic paintings introduce children to the tropical rain forest and the animals that live within its wet, green world. From swinging monkeys and upside-down-hanging sloths to graceful caimans and stalking jaguars, Here Is the Tropical Rain Forest envelops young readers in a stunning jungle while teaching them an important lesson about the ecosystem. Madeleine Dunphy’s rhythmical, cumulative text shows how each plant and animal of the rain forest is inextricably linked with the others in a chain of life. Michael Rothman’s deeply hued and shadowed paintings brilliantly evoke this singular environment.

From Booklist:

Ages 5-7. Both pictures and language are worthy of note in a text that employs a "this is the house that Jack built" format to link plants, animals, and climate. The frog, for example, who bathes in the rain, is protected by the bromeliad, which is held by the tree, and so on. The words read aloud with a distinct rhythm, and Rothman's artwork, in a palette of subdued greens and browns, shows readers the connectedness of the plants and animals, rather than showing flashy animal species in a Hollywood spotlight. Although killing is not shown, the animals are presented as predators. Mary Harris Veeder
