Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
This book is better than a barrel of monkeys. The adorable photos of baby primates in their natural environments will make any reader smile. It is informative:, covering the definition and kinds of primates, the physical structure of primates and their habitats. Among the featured primates are baboons, macaque monkeys, black spider monkeys, marmosets, golden lion tamarins, gibbons, bonobos, orangutans, lemurs, tarsiers, bush babies, and loris. The premium photographs show monkeys in their environment, such as the douc langur monkey in Southeast Asia, the howler monkey in South America, an orangutan in the jungle on an island in Asia, and mountain gorillas in the highlands in Africa. Human children, also primates, are shown on a sidewalk in the city. Baby primate monkeys are shown hanging from trees, clinging to their moms’ chests and riding on other primates’ backs. A chapter is dedicated to the issue of endangered primates, and why habitat loss and hunters threaten them. At the end of the book, readers can test their comprehension with a quiz that matches pictures of primates with facts found within the text. Reviewer: Krisan Murphy; Ages 6 to 10.
