Rainforest in Daylight
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     The rainforest has two faces, one for day and one for night. The night face is one of hidden mystery and darkness. The day face of the rainforest is a shady green with flashes of color.
2     Dawn and dusk are busy times in rainforests. Those who are awake are getting ready to rest while others are getting up.
3     Some rainforest animals never rest. Ants work all the time. Sometimes fifty different kinds of ant will live in one tree!
4     Butterflies are like moving flowers in the rainforest. One of the birdwing butterflies has a twelve inch wingspan!
5     Rain falls nearly every day in the rainforest. Some plants collect the water in tiny pools. Many things live there like insects, snails, and frogs.
6     Toucans and parrots are awake in the daytime. They have brightly colored feathers and strong beaks. They look for fruits and nuts to eat. Their large beaks allow them to break open seeds that smaller birds can't.
7     Hummingbirds are like tiny jewels. They sip nectar from flowers. Song birds with bright feathers sing in the tree branches. Many birds move from cold areas to the rainforest when winter comes.
8     In Africa, forest elephants live in the rainforest. They are smaller than their cousins in other places. They stay in small groups.
