Excerpt from If You Were Me and Lived In ... Brazil
by Carole P. Roman (Author) and Kelsea Weirenga (Illustrator):



You would be thrilled to take a boat trip to the Amazon (Am-a-zon) River through the Amazon Rain Forest. While the majority of the forest is located in Brazil, you could travel through nine different countries. The Amazon is the largest tropical rainforest in the world and has over 390 billion trees. It also has thousands of different kinds of plants with millions of insects, fishes, and birds. You could see monkeys, parrots, and toucans (tou-cans), turtles, and many other animals there. You would love to study the importance of keeping the rain forest safe from deforestation (de-for- es-tay- shun) and pollution.
