About this book

Find Out About Rainforests comes with 20 projects and more than 250 pictures. You can explore the tallest treetops, reveal the noises of the rainforest canopy, and unveil the secrets of the dark and dank forest floor with this exciting book. It includes 20 practical projects that help you understand the mysterious world of the rainforest. You can grow rainforest plants, make plaster casts of animal tracks, propagate exotic seeds, conduct a forest survey, construct a shelter, and much more.

More than 250 illustrations include photographs and specially commissioned explanatory diagrams. It is ideal for home or school use for 8- to 12-year-olds. Rainforests cover only about six per cent of the Earth's surface, and yet they are home to more than half of all the species of plants and animals in the world. This fascinating book follows lemurs and sloths as they climb the branches of trees, and shows a viper swallowing its prey.

Watch a hummingbird feed while it hovers in the air, and learn how lizards 'fly' through the forest. Fascinating and easy-to-do projects, such as tracking animals, planting a mini-jungle and making a hammock, enable you to learn more about life in the rainforest. Measure and identify various types of trees, search for minibeasts, and learn the difference between tropical and temperate rainforests. With over 250 stunning photographs and illustrations, as well as lively and informative text by an award-winning children's natural history writer, Find Out About Rainforests is the perfect fun learning book.
