The award-winning team behind Can We Save the Tiger? and Ape invites young readers to explore the breathtaking biodiversity of a Malaysian tropical rain forest.

Conservation biologist Martin Jenkins and acclaimed fine artist Vicky White expertly guide readers into the complex ecosystem of Malaysia’s Taman Negara. Conversational prose and photorealistic black-and-white artwork—punctuated by four jaw-dropping full-color spreads—evoke the whir of cicadas and the low call of a pheasant. Pages fill with ants and elephants, leopards and hornbills, gibbons and bats, as animals spread and fertilize seeds to help maintain a magnificent old-growth forest. Every living thing in the rain forest is interconnected, and a dazzling full-color index guide at the end of the book challenges readers to circle back and marvel at animals they may have missed in the dense foliage. Meticulously researched and visually arresting, this creative tour de force is a young conservationist’s dream: the ecotour of a lifetime.

A Walk Through the Rain Forest is such a breath-taking picture book.
The illustrations are beautiful, although my children didn't enjoy them as much as I did as there is an absence of color. However, they show how diverse the animal, insect, and plant population of a rainforest can be. The full-color guide located at the back of the book was nice, providing both the common and scientific names.

The writing style was fun. The writer didn't over complicate things by using words that would go over most people's heads. I love how the importance of rain forests gets through through-out the entire story.
