This is a great book that has the ability to fascinate youngsters, as it has truly beautiful photographs of different rain forests and tells the story of a very interesting female scientist, Meg Lowman. The audience is for older elementary children, but I think that even younger elementary children would enjoy listening to it and looking at the photos. I think that it is considered specialized nonfiction because the authors center the focus of the book on the wonders of rainforest canopies. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the rainforest, and anyone who is going on a vacation to a rainforest because it--both interestingly and simply--describes life in the canopy of a rainforest.
