Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


At this level there will be a more sophisticated range of sentences, vocabulary and language features. Includes glossary and index.

Rainforests are a fascinating nonfiction topic for children, and this book is an engaging introduction to all aspects of this amazing environment. Starting with the essential question, "What is a rainforest?" Kingfisher Readers L5: Rainforests by James Harrison covers the geography, climate, the diverse and colorful animal life, and the people and resources we find there. Throughout the text, more than three dozen challenging words are subtly introduced, and a glossary and index at the back help readers stretch their vocabulary. The amazing photography and artwork work seamlessly with the text to help independent readers build their fluency and their confidence with this interesting subject.
