Foreword Review — May / June 2010
In this rhyming story, the creatures of the Amazon invite three children to explore and observe the rainforest on a visit that lasts from sunrise to evening. “‘Fly,’ squawk the parrots…’Jump,’ chatter monkeys. ‘Or swing if you dare. We’ll hang by our tails and then leap through the air.’” Wilson’s illustrations are full of color and detail, and the range of creatures who have something to say make this a full and interesting visit. Appendices describe the creatures and peoples of the Amazon rainforest for grownups or good readers. For ages four to ten.
