Rainforests in 30 Seconds: 30 fascinating topics for rainforest fanatics explained in half a minute

Review

With fast facts, mini missions, and engaging artwork, Rainforests in 30 Seconds explores the extraordinary ecosystems of the world's rain forests. Each topic is presented in a short and to the point 30-second summary, supported by a three-second flash soundbite and full-colour artwork. Fun, active elements for kids to make-and-do support the topics, encouraging them to test, explore, and discover more.

This book came in use during our work on Brazil, in particular the Amazon Rainforest. The children found the information easy to understand and relevant to their learning. I would happily use this non-fiction text again in the future when studying the different habitats animals live in and to help make links to the science curriculum.

Although used with Year 1, I believe this would be a great independent read for children in KS2 and would be accessible for the majority of them. I would think that a series of these books would be a great resource for education settings, exploring the different parts of our world.
