Go on a journey through the jungle without ever leaving your bed! With Your Bedroom is a Rainforest!, kids can transform an ordinary room into a habitat for some of Earth’s most amazing creatures with reusable, wall-safe (and BPA-free!), glow-in-the-dark stickers—everything from blue morpho butterflies to Bengal tigers to poison dart frogs!
“What’s your favorite animal?” The answer to this question, much like one’s favorite color, can say a lot about a kid. Maybe they’re into gorillas because they admire their nobility; maybe the colors of a toucan capture their imagination; maybe they like crocodiles because they take to water. While there are countless possible answers to this question, one thing is almost certain: they probably aren’t going to say, “squirrel.” No, the favorite animal of a child tends to be exotic, dangerous, fast, and maybe even endangered. In the past, a long and expensive trip to the zoo was required for kids to pay a visit to their beast of choice. Well, not anymore! Your Bedroom is a Rainforest! brings the incredible ecosystems of Central America, northern South America, western Africa, Southeast Asia, and beyond, right to the walls of your child’s bedroom!
Within this keepsake-worthy hardcover book you will find more than 60 reusable stickers of jaguars, capybara, scarlet macaws, monkeys, forest elephants, anacondas, and many more adorable—and sometimes ferocious—animals glow in the dark and bring your environment to life. Along with the stickers, kids can look forward to pages packed with illustrations of their favorite animals accompanied by fascinating, and often hard-to-believe facts, such as:
- Most pandas spend half the day eating. - Toxic poison dart frogs have neon colors to warn predators. - Tiger urine smells like buttered popcorn. - Without sloths, there would be no avocados! - Lions may be called the kings of the jungle, but they don’t live anywhere near them. - Much of the life in the rainforest is found in the trees. - Unlike many other cats, jaguars do not avoid water; in fact, they are excellent swimmers.
The high-quality, glow-in-the-dark stickers might be what gets kids interested, but the amazing facts are sure to be what keeps them around. And the best part? You’re never too old to appreciate amazing jungle animals!
