About the Series
Each book in this essential series reveals the life cycles of ten animals in a particular habitat which link together to create three food chains.  At the end of the book a simple overview helps readers understand how the three food chains interact to create a food web- the perfect first introduction to this core science concept.
 
The rainforest is one of the most bio-diverse environments on the planet with some of the most amazing creatures on earth. In this first introduction to lifecycles in three different rainforests, young readers learn how animals they might not expect-like the Amazon's leafcutter ant and the jaguar, or Borneo's butterflies and saltwater crocodiles-are part of the same food chain. At the end of each spread, readers use a picture clue to guess which predator is about to pounce. At the end of the book, young scientists explore how the three chains interact to form a food web, the basis for all life in an ecosystem. Age appropriate text and dynamic photographs make this a perfect introduction to this core scientific concept.

Praise for Life Cycles: Rainforest

Library Media Connection
The layout, colors, and photography are well organized and very eye-catching. These books would be useful for browsing, as well as teaching and researching ecosystems and life cycles.
 
The Horn Book
Well-designed double-page spreads (including useful tab-charts on left-hand pages) provide brief information about each creature and its place on the chain. Vivid photos and vibrantly colored pages are eye-catching. Useful food web charts summarizing content are appended.
 
NSTA Recommends
The interactions among producers and consumers under the rainforest canopy are depicted in a brilliantly colored and picturesque manner. . . .  The facts about the armadillo and many of the other organisms were fascinating. Along with life cycle wonders, other interesting facts reach out from each full-page view. As a teacher, the adaptations that allow each of these creatures to survive in its environment are as interesting as the beauty of the organism itself.
