The Amazon River basin teems with life—animal and plant alike. It's a rainforest that is home to an estimated 390 billion individual trees, 2.5 million species of insects, and hundreds of amazing creatures and plants that can either cure diseases, or, like the poison dart frog, kill with a single touch.

    I like the book very much . Specially how the Author explain the details very clear . Here are some amazing facts about the Amazon : 1- It may have as many as 400 billion trees ! 2- The Amazon River has more water than the Nile , the Mississippi , and the Yangtze combined ! The Amazon river is not like the Sahara or Antarctica ( very cold or very hot ) , it has perfect temperature for all of the plants and animals to grow .😁

    Learned quite a bit about this mysterious place. My students were engaged after I shared a few new things I learned. Great read.

    Guess the author omitted how the Amazons are being horribly exploited and destroyed.

    This title gives a nice overview of the Amazon River and Rainforest, including its discovery, history, and plant and animal life. The plentiful black and white illustrations include maps and there is a full color fold-out map in the back of the book. Chapters include “First Settlers,” “Search for the City of Gold,” “Incredible Creatures” and “Protecting the Forest.” The book includes a timeline as well as a bibliography for further reading.
