All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

With Rachel Crandell. Swedish boy Peter goes on vacation with his mother to the Children's Eternal Rainforest in Costa Rica. This premise is just an excuse for the authors to give information about rainforest ecology. The dialogue is stilted, and the overly busy pages (including informative sidebars about rainforest animals) make the story difficult to follow. Reading list, websites.

Gr 2–6— Anna and Peter, a mother and son from Sweden, visit the Costa Rican rainforest called El Bosque Eterno de los Nios (the BEN) and learn about its unique plants and animals. As they hike to various parts of the forest, Peter is surprised to discover that fundraising that led to the BEN's establishment began 20 years ago through the efforts of a second-grade class in Sweden. One of the children was his mom. Despite the amount of information conveyed in the narrative and conversations, the story doesn't seem contrived. Small cartoons of the people appear at the bottom corners of the large, colorful illustrations of various animals and forest landscapes. The central pictures are big enough for group sharing. Older readers can find out more about the individual plants and animals in the paragraphs contained in sidebars. A two-page explanation of the origins of the Children's Eternal Rainforest and photos of the area appear after the main text. Those who want to know more about the BEN's ecology and origins can find lots of photos and information in Dorothy Hinshaw Patent's Children Save the Rain Forest (Dutton, 1996). Pratt-Serafini's book serves as a good introduction to the BEN itself and to children's conservation efforts.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
