for The Tropical Rainforest
by Gerard Cheshire
Children won't be able to put down Nature Unfolds, an exciting new series that uses spectacular fold-out illustrations to involve children in exploring habitats. Each book divides a particular habitat into its natural layers. The first spread features an overview of the entire habitat, which then opens up to reveal a glorious 11 3/4 x 34 3/4" fold-out illustration. Turning the pages reveals a closer in depth look at the animals and plant life one layer at a time. Each book contains fascinating information, two lavish fold-out illustrations, and a key listing wildlife and plant life. Children will be engrossed by searching for specific animals and plants in these amazingly detailed, full-color fold-outs.
Children will be fascinated by the colorful animals and plants in Nature Unfolds The Tropical Rainforest, a lavishly illustrated new book that takes readers on a journey from the swamplands of the Amazon delta up through the layers of the tropical rainforest -- two separate but linking habitats. Amazing information and two spectacular fold-out illustrations help children identify the wildlife and plants that live:
-- in the Amazon estuary
-- in its wetlands and marshlands
-- at the forest's edge
-- in the upper canopy
-- in the lower canopy
-- in the understory
-- on top and beneath the forest floor
