"What is a tropical jungle? This lively picture book will explain in a manner that children will understand the complex ecosystem, complete with plants and animals that make up only seven percent of the earth’s surface but contains more than half of all the plants and animals on earth. There is a lot to learn about tropical jungles; this is just the beginning. Some of the digital illustrations are bright and bold, others are muted and earthy. The five basic layers of jungle life are diagrammed in a double spread. There are curious facts given on every other page. A little of everything is included, from the dangers of deforestation to both plants and animals to the assessment of the benefits about the products we get from tropical jungles: woods, fruits, gum, medicine, etc. The last few pages contain more facts, a glossary, a bibliography, an index, and a listing of other books in the series. This informational book is suitable for the elementary science curriculum and for school and public libraries as well." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

"These titles succinctly and clearly explore the planet’s different ecosystems. Océanos gives a captivating overview of various marine life-forms, from familiar plants and animals to more obscure organisms in the ocean floor, sea currents, and the water cycle. Desiertos touches upon the different types of deserts worldwide as it provides interesting facts that will stir students’ curiosity, such as how cactus plants store water and how animals are able to live in such harsh environments. Selvas tropicales studies the amazing diversity of the world’s rainforests, their animals and plants, their colors and noises. The texts use many challenging words—such as ecosistema, invertebrados (invertebrates) and mamíferos (mammals)—but present the facts in a fun, engaging way. In all volumes, one page provides the facts and the opposite gives a “Dato curioso” (a bit of trivia) such as, “Did you know that most deserts are not actually hot but extremely cold?” The large, pastel-toned digital illustrations enhance the texts, and a world map shows where each ecosystem can be found. Recommended for school libraries, these titles will make a great addition to Spanish-language science curriculums." -
