« The second volume of the Amazon Rainforest Magic series recounts the surprising voyage of Meromi, a Yanomami girl who is swept into an unexpected adventure in the rivers and jungles of the Amazon. It is a truly magical journey for Meromi as she learns more about the ways of the jungle and her place in the Yanomami community.
Barbara Crane Navarro’s passion and concern for the Yanomami and the nature they depend on is clearly illustrated in her words and art in these little books. Who on this planet does not have a stake in what happens to the Amazon Rainforest ?
Sharing these children’s books insures that new generations will pay attention to the fragility of life in the rainforest and to the indigenous people trying to maintain their way of life where they have lived for millennia. »
