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...

My granddaughters loved this book.
Beautiful pictures and the children had many conversations about it with their parents.
A stunning book, with beautiful bright illustrations! We learn how important it is to care for nature, the trees, the rivers and the animals around us. To be kind to our animal friends and look after our each other! An fun educational book about nature, filled with imagination and lots of kindness.
Lovely book, started great conversations with the kids.
Purchased 4 books. All wonderful
Pictures are gorgeous, and story easy for children to read and understand. They were gifts, thats why the exact titles aren’t right. Parents and child love them, thankyou. Couldnt be more pleased
A wonderful adventure through the rainforest with bright appealing pictures. A lovely message about caring for the planet, and a great call to action at the end. My daughters and I really enjoyed reading this book, another treasure for our home library. Will be buying more books from Ethicool and will be sharing them as gifts as well.
Most beautiful pictures and stories I have bought two for one of my granddaughter she is nearly five
Very quick delivery and nicely packaged
I enjoyed reading both books and am passing them on to my daughter who is a Primary school teacher with the idea of donating them to her school library.
This is a beautifully illustrated book for kids and a great way to start of conversations about conservation.
So much beauty in the illustrations
And the storyline sends a message for the young to learn and the old to teach
