 This addition to the Little Nature Books series has glossy covers, vivid full-color photographs of appealing animals, and brief lines of text. The magazine-quality reproductions and the reassuringly predictable text will attract preschoolers, as well as older learning disabled children. Almost every sentence begins, ``I am a . . . '' and then names and shows the monkey or ape: chimpanzee, baboon, macaque, orangutan, etc. The variety is striking and the photos are funny. Attractive and useful. (Board book. 2-8)
