We're Roaming in the Rainforest An Amazon Adventure by Laurie Krebs

Three children embark on a day-long trek through the rainforest, discovering all sorts of exotic creatures in their natural habitats. The charming, rhyming text highlights an adjective for each creature, from chattering monkeys to crouching jaguars. The story is complemented by educational endnotes about the creatures featured in the story, and the peoples of the rainforest.
