STAR REVIEW! Is that a chimpanzee or an orangutan? Maybe it’s a gorilla? This series will clear up any confusion one might have about primates. Each book starts off with a description of what primates are and shows where they live in the world. There are chapters about the featured primates’ classification, adaptations, life cycle, behavior, intelligence, and their future… Text is written in a simple and straightforward manner that is easy enough for upper elementary students to read, yet contains plenty of information for researchers. Highly Recommended.
These meaty introductions to our closest animal relatives will give young readers a solid grounding in primates’ physical features, social habits, mental capabilities, and lives in their wild habitats. Sidebars profile scientists… and cover how much they have learned about the animals from observing and interacting with them in both their natural environments and in captivity.
