★ "Exquisitely illustrated. . . . Once again, Munro's kid-friendly style invites young readers to wonder about the earth and its creatures."--Booklist, Starred Review

★ "Readers must search the images for the creatures introduced in the text and will be captivated by the myriad hues and intricate detail used in each one. To make room for the anteater, two pages fold out, immersing readers even more deeply into this multifaceted world. Paragraphs of accessible text give readers a wealth of facts about each animal in the book, the names of which stand out in colorful, bold letters. . . . This is an important addition to elementary school nonfiction ­collections as a means of encouraging global conservation through education."--School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Each animal is depicted in actual size, displaying its unique and vibrant colors against a lush background, as seen through Munro's vivid, jewel-toned palette of acrylic inks."--The Horn Book

"Animals that dwell at all levels of a South American tropical rainforest are depicted realistically--i.e., true to size and color--in this fascinating book. . . . Each spread highlights one to three creatures presented against a colorful natural-habitat backdrop, accompanied by lively, concise paragraphs."--Kirkus Reviews
