This Place is Wet An Imagine Living Here Book by Vicki Cobb

Or where it is so wet that some plants can grow on the sides of trees with their roots gathering water from the air? In This Place is Wet you'll find out all sorts of things about what it's like to live in the rain forest of Brazil. Try to imagine living there!
