If I Ran the Rain Forest
If I Ran the Rain Forest by Bonnie Worth is a selection from the Cat in the Hat's Learning Library, a wonderful series of books for young readers. These books are entertaining and educational, presenting non-fiction concepts in a basic format to help children build ideas about the natural world. In If I Ran the Rain Forest, the much loved Dr. Seuss character, the Cat in the Hat, is here to tell you about a fascinating part of the world, filled with life! The rain forest is brimming with enormous trees, which are home to amazing creatures, like parrots, monkeys, and frogs. However, this fantastic place is threatened--people are cutting down trees, and so the Cat tells us, if he ran the rain forest he'd say "chop somewhere else, people. Leave us these trees. Don't cut them down. Save the trees, please!"
