Deep in the forest, in the warm-wet green, 1 almendro tree grows, stretching its branches toward the sun. Who makes their homes here? 2 great green macaws, 4 keel-billed toucans, 8 howler monkeys, 16 fruit bats, 32 fer de lance vipers, 64 agoutis, 128 blue morpho butterflies, 256 poison dart frogs, 512 rusty wandering spiders, and 1,024 leaf-cutter ants. Count each one as life multiplies again and again in this lush and fascinating book about the rainforest's abundant beauty and the wonderful multiplicity of life sustained by just one almendro tree.
