Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
This introduction to primates examines the behavioral patterns and physical features of apes and old- and new-world monkeys. Comparisons are made between different species as well as contrasts between apes and monkeys. Although chapters and section headings are not used, the text is well organized around specific themes such as habits, social behavior, etc. The writing is smooth and flows well. The combination of good quality color photographs and illustrations and well-designed, open pages with wide margins and large print create a visually appealing nature study that would make a useful addition to nature collections. Similar information at the same reading level is available in Kathryn W. Lumley's Monkeys and Apes (Childrens, 1982), but Gelman's book is more readable and more visually attractive.--Cynthia M.
