Review quote

Booklist[T]he double-page spreads in the Navigators series are packed with high-gloss color photographs, digital imagery, maps, and cutaways. But readers will want to look past the glitz, as [this] title also offers a substantial overview of the topic, with gems of information not seen in similar books. "Rainforests" introduces a wealth of animals that live below, in, and above the canopy. . . [and] quotes from notable authors and texts add to the browsing appeal of this book. [A] good first stop in the research process. NSTA RecommendsColorful pictures are abundant, and each page contains lots of valuable information. . . .This book is a great source of information for students. A glossary is given as well as an index. The last page contains even more resources, such as the names of wildlife parks, tropical gardens, conservation groups, and documentaries and movies for learning more about rainforests. This book may also attract older readers because of the striking visuals.show more
