A trio of children embark on a day long trek through the rainforest, discovering all sorts of exotic creatures in their natural habitats. The charming, rhyming text highlights a verb for each creature, from chattering monkeys to crouching jaguars. The story is complemented by nine pages of educational endnotes, including information about the Amazon, the creatures featured in the story, the peoples of the rainforest, and a full-page, full-colour map of South America. This title uses simple, patterned language to introduce children to the Amazon. It joins Laurie Krebs' bestselling series of travel books, which also includes "We All Went on Safari", "Off We Go to Mexico", "We're Sailing to Galapagos" and "We're Sailing Down the Nile" (HB: 9781846860393; PB: 9781846861932).
