Living in the Wild: Primates Series
by Capstone Press/InfoSearch

Series Review
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, such as Dian Fossey and Sue Savage-Rumbaugh, and cover how much they have learned about the animals from observing and interacting with them in both their natural environ-ments and in captivity. Though there is some uneven coverage (monkeys are squeezed together in a single title while bonobos and orangutans have books of their own), there is still plenty of information in any of these volumes for assignment use. All of them are liberally illustrated with animal (and researcher) photos and enhanced by fact boxes and side commentary.
