The Bosque Seco, or Dry Forest, in Guánica, Puerto Rico - at the
opposite end of the island from El Yunque and the Rain Forest - is also
opposite in its plants, animals and weather...In fact most of the plants
appear to like cacti...It is a wonderful place and so unique. So here
you will find a delightful book, a story told by an old sea turtle with the
dry forest as its' backdrop. This is a story about conservation and
how thoughtless acts by humans put animals in mortal danger...Meanwhile,
you'll meet all the creatures that inhabit the dry tropical forest - and
learn something about their adaptation to their habitat. You'll want
to visit it as soon as you finish this book!
The San Pedrito Collection is a series of book for
young people, designed to stimulate their interest in their natural
surroundings and the animals and plants that live there. Each book is a
collaboration of three authors: a scientist, an illustrator and a
writer and each focuses on a unique feature of Puerto Rico: El
Yunque Rain Forest, the Dry
Forest in Guánica; the subterranean
caves, the mangroves and the
coast.This is a wonderful way to teach your child about Puerto Rico's
rich natural heritage! You will also find a bibliography of related
titles on the same subject, and an interesting facts addendum to the story.
