Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Katie DeWald
Did you know baboons filter their own drinking water, gibbons can reach speeds of 35 miles an hour as they swing through the trees, and that macaques who live in the mountains of Japan keep warm by bathing in hot-water springs? These are just three of the hundred facts about all types of primates you will find in this volume of the "100 Things You Should Know About" series. The one hundred facts are numbered throughout the book and each two-page spread is given a title such as "Our closest cousins," "Bright and bold," and "Primates at risk." Readers will learn about bushbabies, lemurs, spider monkeys, baboons, macaques, gibbons, bonobos, orangutans, and gorillas. The book is filled with fascinating photographs and life-like drawings which add to the interest and understanding of the text. A helpful index and table of contents are included. Brightly colored text boxes peppered throughout the text serve to help readers interact with the text, learn more about the subject, and apply their newfound knowledge of primates. Readers will be intrigued by the catchy series title, captivated by the amazing illustrations, and enthralled by the strange behaviors of monkeys and apes. Reviewer: Katie DeWald
