2. Kratter's Living Rain Forest is an example of what artist Paul Zelinsky has referred to as "the alphabet as an excuse. These books, aimed at children who are probably well versed in their letters, have an A-to-Z format that works mostly as an organizing principle for facts.

The illustrations are excellent - intricate and beautifully rendered. The text could have been beefed up a little to give it more content, other than that it's a good book for young children.

"Rain forests cover only six percent of the earth's land yet contain over half its animal and plant species." These words by Paul Kratter in the introduction are part of his work to save the rain forests, and his beautiful and exquisite paintings of some of the animals of the rain forests are the other. "In the past 200 years we have lost more than half the world's rain forests."

Kratter selected 26 animals to paint to illustrate the diversity and variety of mammals, reptiles, bird, amphibians, and insects that inhabit the humid and rainy forests along Earth's equatorial lands. The anteater is toothless and uses its long snout to lick up ants and termites with its long, sticky tongue.

The morpho butterfly has brown undersides and blue topside wings edged in black, a combination that works as camouflage. The Amazon River Dolphin must use echolocation to locate food because the Amazon is so murky from soil constantly being washed into it. Do you know dolphins eat crabs, fish, and turtles?

In addition to the lovely illustrations of each animal, Kratter provides various definitions of words used in his text. This is a genuine teaching aid that reinforces new information. Besides echolocation, he uses talons, toxic, fungi, nectar, arboreal, aquatic, predator, canopy, nocturnal, prehensile, and covert feathers, and others.

Here are things Kratter accomplishes with this seemingly simple alphabet book:
1. Information about the importance of rain forests
2. Beautiful illustrations, some frameable
3. A picture, plus what the animal eats and individual habits of each
4. Animal's size in inches and feet is provided
5. The alphabet is reinforced.

The last illustration is one of the rain forest with each part labeled and identified. The last page lists resources and further reading. One of my favorite things about a children's book is the use of the end pages for additional information. In Kratter's book there is a map of the Tropical Rain Forests of the World with the areas marked in green. Also he provides a list of the 26 animals and each one's specific location.

If we don't pay attention to visionaries like Kratter, his book will become more than a children's book: it will become a memorial to what once was.

This is a clever little alphabet book. It's a strange book, really. Usually alphabet books are simple, most pictures with a few small words. In this book, the pictures are detailed and gorgeous and the prose is complex. Big words, like aquatic, nocturnal, and predator, fill the sentences (and then are defined just below the main paragraph). This is an excellent book for a parent to read to a child. And the information is interesting and well-presented. My only qualm is the child who needs to learn the alphabet wouldn't be able to read ANY of the prose. Still, it's a good book and I'm glad I bought it.
