Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
They hang from tree branches by their tails, swing from tree to tree with great ease, and have one of the loudest howls on earth: they are Howler Monkeys. And what amazing animals they are! Learn about these noisy creatures along with their other monkey friends who live in the rain forest in this installment of the "Animals That Live in the Rain Forest" series. Short, simple sentences present introductory level knowledge, such as identifying features, predators, habitat, and eating habits of these positively intriguing primates. Accompanying the easy-to-read text are bright color photographs of the monkeys in their natural habitats, pleasing to the eye and very inviting. The brief glossary in the back provides definitions for a few less common words, and suggestions are given for further reading and web surfing on the subject, for the child whose interest is sparked. Great for use in an early elementary classroom to encourage a more focused look at the individual animals in the rain forest. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
