Often, children will be drawn to books that give them factual information and
open up the big world to them.

In a story format, Jan Brett gives us a glimpse of the life in the Monteverde Rainforest in Costa Rica where animals and birds appear and disappear, especially the resplendent quetzal with his tail plumes.
The end papers with animals peeking through the lush verdure are a visual feast.
