A powerful tool both for visualizing numbers and for understanding the amazing diversity and interdependency of the rainforest, this book is for teachers, librarians, and environmentally-minded parents. Deep in the forest, in the warm-wet green, 1 almendro tree grows, stretching its branches toward the sun. Who makes their homes here? 2 great green macaws, 4 keel-billed toucans, 8 howler monkeys, 16 fruit bats, and many more! Count each one as life multiplies again and again in this lush and fascinating book about the rainforest's abundant beauty and the wonderful multiplicity of life sustained by just one almendro tree.
