KIRKUS REVIEW

Dramatic, high-quality photographs and a concise and thoughtful text combine successfully in this mid-level nonfiction easy reader on a topic that fascinates many children. The text covers gorilla family structure and positional names, similarities with other primates, care of their young, communication, nutrition and habitat. The concluding pages offer an explanation of scientific study of gorillas and a moving plea that gorillas “need our help to survive.” This volume will be useful in libraries and classroom settings both as an easy reader and for beginning reports. An author’s note provides additional information about the Wildlife Conservation Society and their work with gorillas. (Easy reader. 5-8)
