Praise for My Rainforest Classroom
“My Rainforest Classroom feels truly ‘otherworldy’ because the illustrations take us on a journey that spans forests and oceans. Kids will find themselves immersed in the storyline, the characters, and the pastel artwork.” - Jess Just Reads.
“This book gives kids a glimpse at what we have lost, and what we are about to lose if we don’t commit, in our own way, to take action. Truly masterful reading." - Kids.Books.We.Love
An excerpt from the story
An owl lands at the foot of my bed and his eyes are as large as the moon's.
"Let me tell you a story, Charlie," he says, as my bed lifts under the river that begins to flow through my room.
"These vines and birds and rivers, and these lions and tigers and lizards, they were here before all of us. They have seen the world in all its colours, fished gently in all its streams and jumped between the branches of its trees. They want to show you just why - welcome to our Rainforest Classroom!"
The river rises higher beneath my bed and fish begin to jump over me. They splash and squirm and jump and dive as my bed begins to float away.
It drifts over my bedroom walls and rushes down the street, dancing on the rapids and surfing between the tall buildings of the city. The rainforest has climbed over everything and the fern leaves have almost reached to the moon.
"This is what it looked like before you were here," says the owl, flying smoothly above me, as my bed flows faster and faster down the river. "The animals were everywhere and the plants were their home, and the river ran cool and fast."
The river rises and rises, and the highest of the buildings disappear. More birds gather in the canopies of the trees and the moon begins to smile.
"It's beautiful, isn't it?" smiles the owl, landing on my shoulder and blinking his warm and yellow eyes...

our post office has informed me that the books may arrive in January - too late for Christmas presents
So much beauty in the illustrations
And the storyline sends a message for the young to learn and the old to teach
I bought one of the 5 packs, I’ve read them all and can’t wait to give them as Christmas gifts , I’m sure the kids will love them as much as I do
I know my great grand children are going to love this book for Xmas, they are so into "saving the trees and the animals".
with all of the beautiful coloured pages in this book we are going to have so many chats that they will take to their teachers in the new year.
Daddy takes them camping by the river and they go on bush walks so they will be able to relate.
Thank you so much, I have one of each books now, they will be so excited at Xmas.
