“The child-friendly illustrations-pen-and-ink drawings with watercolors, liquid acrylics, pencils, and pastels-make this an inviting title from cover to cover... This informative volume from the dependable Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out science series offers an uncommonly readable introduction to rain forests.” (Booklist (starred review))
“The well-informed narrative voice describes the physical divisions of the rainforest, such as the canopy and the understory, while the children’s tour guide (in conversational speech balloons) points out special features of the area, such as the living components of the leaf litter.” (The Horn Book)
“Dominated by greens and browns, Duke’s friendly cartoons effectively communicate the immense variety of plant and animal life found in rain forests and feature cutaway views and close-ups in several spreads” (Kirkus Reviews)
