Comments for A Walk in the Rainforest

A Walk in the RainforestA Walk in the Rainforest: 07/19/09

A Walk in the Rainforest is an almost A to Z tour of the rainforest. It is brightly illustrated with the flora and fauna of the rainforest.

It starts with an ant talking a walk and the book asks in rhyme what he will see during his trip. There are certainly enough exotic things to fit every letter of the alphabet but the book doesn't. The book leaves off with X Y Z. My son points out that it could have included X-Ray fish, yapock (water possum) and zorro (flag tailed fox).

With the exception then of these three missing letters both of my kids enjoyed the book. The illustrations are lovely and the rhymes aren't too distracting.
