My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from Callisto Media. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

This is a fun search and find book for children. It also has a lot of information about rainforests and the animals that live in them. There is a lot of trivia included which I found fascinating, but it may be a bit much for younger children to absorb. I think if the child searches while an adult reads the facts, that might work out well. Also, if they can’t find an animal, there is an answer key at the end of the book! After the answer key is a glossary which is helpful too.

Search the Rainforest, Find the Animals is a fun book for children to search and find rainforest animals, and they might even learn a few things at the same time!
