THE RAINFOREST GREW ALL AROUND by Susan K. Mitchell
FICTION
Released: April 1, 2007

"A lighter, less message-driven alternative to Lynne Cherry's classroom standby, Great Kapok Tree (1990). (Picture book/nonfiction. 6-8)"
Modeling her text on the folk version of "And the Green Grass Grew All Around" (rather than William Jerome's lurid ballad of the same name), Mitchell tours a tall kapok tree, pointing out for each cumulative verse a cat, a snake, an ant, a frog or other floral or faunal resident of its ecosystem.
