Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Chimpanzees, or chimps, are clever animals. Read to find out what these primates figure out and learn as part of their survival. There is a description of a chimp's life and its interactions in its community. Chimpanzees communicate with each other with sounds and actions. They indicate with noises that they found food. In their interactions, chimpanzees show their rank in the hierarchy of their community. In addition, there is some information about Washoe, the chimp, who learned sign language. Throughout the book there are captioned, color photographs. In addition, readers will find illustrations of a chimp's skeleton, a comparison its hand and foot, a general timeline of its life, and a map of where they live in Africa. The last chapter describes why the chimpanzees are endangered and what some people are doing to help them. There is a brief mention of Dr. Jane Goodall's work with chimps. To find out more about chimpanzees, there is a list of books and websites at the back of the book. This book is part of the "Benchmark Rockets: Animals" series which feature five other mammals. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
Children's Literature
Beginning with a comparison of chimpanzees and humans, this book then describes the life patterns of these animals, citing studies by Jane Goodall. The status of chimpanzees as an endangered species is emphasized. The total number remaining in the world, most in central Africa, is between 30,000 and 50,000. The importance of maintaining their habitats and prosecuting poachers is stressed. Engaging full-color photographs create empathy for these animals. Includes a table of contents, a glossary, an index and a bibliography with both book and web site references. Part of the "Animals Animals" series 2001, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish, $31.75. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3–Each of these titles focuses on an endangered animal, although status is not the overriding emphasis. Instead, the books’ three chapters reveal the creatures’ habitats, characteristics, diet, and parenting techniques, often providing fun facts that are not found in other similar books. Readers will learn, for example, that grooming helps chimpanzees feel calm, that whales are divided into two groups–those with teeth and those without–and that lions catch their prey only by ambush, not by running. The straightforward presentation of the information and the uncluttered and attractive layout make these books good choices for reports. Color photographs, while not outstanding, are well utilized and complete a solid package. This is a good series for replacing older books or supplementing existing collections.
