It's teeming with life—many kinds of life. Giant cats and skittish bats. Squawking parrots and upside-down sloths. Even the trees seem animated, with their long, loopy vines. From its earth floor to the top of the tree canopy, the tropical rain forest has more living things in it than any other habitat on earth. Stunning drawings, step-by-step experiments, fun activities, and fascinating facts abound in this magical exploration of an essential ecosystem—which may be in danger of disappearing forever.

With this book, you can explore one small square of a rain forest in a zoo . . . at a nature preserve . . . or at home. This is a welcome addition to the critically acclaimed One Small Square science and nature series for children ages 6 to 9.

This book includes:

  • Stunning, full-color illustrations of the habitat and its creatures
  • Motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips
  • A picture field guide of the habitat
  • A glossary-index and resource list
