A dozen monkeys from all around the world are featured in this attractive paperback. The monkeys are featured both individually on full page spreads and also together in group settings.

To assist the young reader in understanding where the monkeys live, a large map with inset pictures of each animal identifies its homeland. Another fact section offers additional information about the monkeys. For example, you'll learn that when a red-shanked douc langur wants to play, it closes its eyes to show its pale blue eyelids. That's the monkey's play face and means 'let's have some fun'.

The resourceful parent can use this book to not only teach a child about various types of monkeys but also to focus on different colors, some basic counting skills, and even a brief geography lesson. The artwork is excellent and the vibrant colors jump right off the page and attract the reader's eye.
