    About Author

    1. From gailgibbons I was born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1944 Even as a little child, I was always busy putting books together Sometimes I would bind them with yarn to hold the pages together I ve always loved drawing and painting I was also a very curious child My parents tell me that I was always asking lots and lots of questions.Later, I went on to the University of Illinois, where I studied graphic design Then I moved to New York City, where I got a job doing artwork for television shows Eventually I was asked to do the artwork for a children s show While doing that show, some of the children asked me if I had ever thought of doing children s books My mind immediately recalled how much I enjoyed doing that type of thing when I was a child So I put an idea for a book together and right away a publisher bought it That book was called Willy and His Wheel Wagon Since then, over 170 books that I have written and illustrated have been published The type of books I write are non fiction books This is because I love researching so much I get to ask lots of questions, just like when I was a kid I also get to travel and meet lots of interesting people While doing research for my book Nature s Green Umbrella Tropical Rain Forests, I traveled to two islands where there are tropical rain forests, Saba and Dominica I also had a great time writing and illustrating the book I get a lot of pleasure from doing the type of work I do.

    3. Another great book by Gail Gibbons for elementary students There is a lot of informationr whole group instruction in lower elementary it works well, but if independent work, upper elementary would probably be better Good resource for rainforest unit


    4. This book would be great for an intro into rainforest concepts The author talks about where the rainforest is, inhabitants of the rainforest etc I would definitely use it
