Item Description...
Two new books on indigenous peoples and conservation have been added to naturalist Michael Chinery's exciting series Secrets of the Rainforest. Each colorful book shows us the wonderful array of plants and animals that live in the lush wildernesses of the world's tropical rainforests. Acting as the earth's lungs, the rainforests are of vital importance to the planet and to the many indigenous peoples who have traditionally lived in harmony with their lush surroundings. Children will learn how conservationists are struggling to preserve these last remaining wildernesses for future generations.

Nature ensures that new generations of animals are born to replace those that die in the rainforest. Partners and Parents features spectacular photos and illustrations along with clear, simple text that explains the elegant courtship rituals carried out by butterflies, birds, and mammals, why insects live together in huge colonies, how frogs grow up in tree-top nurseries, and how monkeys and apes like to troop through the forest in peaceful family groups.

Topics Include:
-- guarding a territory
-- attracting a mate
-- insects that live together
-- frog families
-- forests full of nests
-- monkeys and apes

More About Michael Chinery

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Michael Chinery is best known for his field guides to insects and other creepy-crawlies, especially those that occur in gardens, and for his numerous books encouraging young people to explore and enjoy the countryside and its wildlife. Insects and wild flowers fascinated him from a very early age and this inevitably led to an interest in plant galls with their intimate mix of plant and animal life. He joined the British Plant Gall Society soon after its formation in 1985, and has been editing the Society's journal, "Cecidology," since 1990.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A colorful view of rainforest life  May 28, 2002
"Partners and Parents," by Michael Chinery, is a children's book about the animals of the rainforest. The book focuses on animal parenting and social organization. Animals covered include the glasswing butterfly, sloth, scorpion, giant millipede, Wilson's bird of paradise, bats, gorillas, and more. The main text is accompanied by a glossary, an index, a map showing the world's main rainforest areas, and a list of Web links and addresses for conservation organizations.

I really liked the stunning, full-color photos in this book. Some of the best images include a fight between two male strawberry poison-arrow frogs; a "writhing ball" of anacondas; the intricately woven nest of a white-throated spoonbill; and a multicolored male knobbed hornbill. A great book for young animal lovers.
