Following the success of Charley Harper's What's in the Woods?, the Nature Discovery Book series continues with this journey through a rain forest. Zoe Burke's rhyming text introduces young readers to thirty different species of rain-forest dwellers - birds, butterflies, lizards, monkeys, and more. All are depicted with colorful images taken from Harper's painting Monteverde, illustrating the various creatures inhabiting Costa Rica's Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve. The entire painting is reproduced on a foldout page at the end of the book, with a key identifying all the featured creatures.

Besides being fun to read, What's in the Rain Forest? provides a great opportunity for children to learn about nature while also seeing how an artist interprets its diversity and beauty.
