Written and illustrated by a 14 year-old in 1992, this best-selling book has introduced a whole generation to the wonders of a very important habitat. Following XYZ the Ant, young readers walk through the alphabet and engage in fun alliterations about the amazing anteater, majestic macaw, and quiet quetzal along with the other inhabitants they encounter in the rainforest. The colorful illustrations were done in magic marker. It reaches a large age range because the large text is for young readers, while smaller text is for you or more advanced children. Kristin Joy Pratt (A Swim through the Sea) once again successfully inspires a generation of children about one of our planet’s most precious and fragile realms. A 48-page teacher’s guide (sold separately) is a valuable educator’s companion.
A Teacher’s Guide by master teachers Bruce and Carol Malnor is available as a companion to A Walk in the Rainforest. The Guide offers lesson plans and activities, including copy masters, to help integrate science into the classroom or home school teacher for Grades 3 through 6. The Guide also integrates character education lessons, tools for maturity, and mind mapping.Please note: The text of the board book edition is simplified. In addition it does not include the sidebar information about the animals that appears in the hardback and paperback editions.
