A Walk in the Rainforest By Kristin Joy Pratt

A Walk in the Rainforest
Kristin Joy Pratt
Dawn Publications (1992)
ISBN 9781878265999
Reviewed by Zoey Crane (age 7) and Nana for Reader Views (7/11)

Written by a fifteen-year-old, this is the story about animals and plants that live in a rainforest. The pictures are amazing.  The ant, who is the main character, describes what he sees in the rainforest and gives details on what animals eat and where they live.

Zoey:

“I like the book but the words were hard to understand.  I thought the pictures were pretty and real. I have never been around a rainforest and had to learn what that was first. Then I read the book. The pictures were like someone painted them. I wish they would have put words in the back so I could learn what they mean. There were many words I didn’t know and I got tired of my Nana making me look up the words.”

Nana:

“A Walk in the Rainforest” was a very detailed and informative book. However, Zoey is used to looking in the back for simple definitions of the words so she could relate them to what she knows. I think this frustrated her. She did like the pictures and, in general, the book.
