Reviews

Teachers looking for a rainforest book that invites participation will want to sing this one aloud, as they share the striking illustrations with their classes. - Booklist Filled with beautiful illustrations and lyrical text, The Rainforest Grew All Around is an excellent resource to introduce children to the wonders of rainforests, an important step in teaching children to be good stewards of Planet Earth. -Rainforest Alliance This lively introduction to plants and animals of the Amazon rainforest is organized around the towering kapok tree. - School Library Journal
