An ant goes for a walk in a rainforest and it as walks through the lush greenery and amongst the tall trees it sees all kinds of wondrous things. Among other things it sees an anteater snuffling up ants, a jewel-like dragonfly resting next to a beautiful orchid, and a “gentle giant” of a gorilla looking out from its home in the forest.

In this colorful alphabet board book Kristin Joy Pratt takes her young readers on a journey to the world’s rainforests, sharing with children some of the wondrous plants and animals that can be found in these very special habitats. Each page focuses on one plant or creature using just a few descriptive words set against a full page background illustration rendered in bright tropical colors.
