Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Chimpanzees are like human beings in many ways. Like humans, they are intelligent, social creatures that use their brains for creating survival methods. Unlike humans, chimps tend to walk on their knuckles and spend most of their time in trees! This book explores habits of chimpanzees such as how they spend their time and how they use objects to make simple tools. It also examines some of the chimp's bodily characteristics such as their excellent vision, sensitive toes and fingers, and opposable thumbs. This is an introductory book that provides a great deal of detail. Intended for intermediate level readers, there are full-size photographs on every other page and each section is about three paragraphs in length. The book concludes with sections that discuss challenges to chimps. Sadly, there are only about 150,000 to 300,000 chimps left in the wild and chimpanzees are facing the very real threat of extinction. This book is from the "Nature's Children" series.
