In this piece of descriptive nonfiction, the author includes sensory details to create a mental picture for readers as they journey around the equator. Readers see what life is like on the snowy top of Mount Kenya as well as along the hot, steamy Amazon and Congo Rivers. Traveling to Singapore, Indonesia, Brazil, Congo, and Kenya, readers see that the world is full of variety--even along the same latitude line. Maps, charts, and photographs support the text.
