Howler Monkeys

by Sandra Donovan, Sandy Donovan

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in the "Animals of the Rainforest" series includes information about how howler monkeys survive in the rainforest, their future in the rainforest, a map where a particular member of a species is located (lower Mexico, Central and South America), charts, and sidebars of interesting facts. A short chapter is devoted to what the animal eats (and what eats it) and the animal's life cycle. Text explains when these monkeys howl and why and how they spend a day in the rainforest canopy. A unique feature of this series is a full-color, double page photograph of the animal with labels keyed to the pages were particular adaptive features of the animal are discussed, an asset to report writers. Research is further supported by a glossary, well-selected and vibrant-colored photographs but with modest mostly descriptive rather than information-bearing captions, an index, a few internet sites, a few other children's book titles, and a useful address to which to write. 2001, Steck-Vaughn,
