This is an awesome nonfiction picture book for children! It teaches about the 5 great apes of the world and their notifiable characteristics. This is an engaging and fun book to read with children. That ends up teaching children the evolutionary connection between monkeys and humans. Great find! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763634719, Hardcover)

With compelling illustrations and a conservationist slant, this look at four rare great apes — and one very familiar one — is a book to go ape over.

Swing with a hairy orangutan and her baby as they lunge for a smelly, spiky durian fruit. Roam and play with a gang of chimps, then poke out some tasty termites with a blade of grass. Chatter and feast on figs with a bonobo, or chomp on bamboo with a gorilla as he readies for sleep. What could be better than spending time with these rare and wonderful creatures — after all, the fifth great ape on this planet is you!
