Annotation: The rainforest ranks with dinosaurs as an enduring source of fascination for children, but has the advantage of still being around to be experienced - at least for now. In 42 color photographs, The Secrets of Tropical Rainforests introduces readers to this amazing environment, the unusual relationships between its animals and plants, and human interaction with rainforests. The book carries a strong ecological message as it explores the rainforest's crucial importance in the world ecosystem, and its extraordinary combination of resilience and fragility. Young readers learn, for example, that killing a rainforest may mean losing potent weapons against kids' cancer. Structured just as the rainforest itself is, from the roots up to the canopy, this title will amaze and delight young readers.
