Animal Loudmoths: Howler monkey, super loud by Natalie Lunis

This is the latest entry in the Animal Loudmouths series. Designed for beginning readers and young listeners, each spread has a set of simpler sentences in a panel with a green background and additional information in smaller boxes as well as captions for the photographs. The book talks about the sounds howler monkeys make, how they use sound to communicate, what they eat, and more details about their life and habitat. Some of the captions are a little ridiculous, like the one which points out “baby howler monkey” on top of “mother howler monkey” which is pretty obvious on its own.

A comparison of sounds, glossary, index, and further resources is also included.

Verdict: This title isn’t perfect – the captions could easily have been removed – but it’s miles away better than the easy picture book nonfiction churned out by other publishers with stock photography, a couple bland sentences, and a price out the window (you know who you are). As always, Bearport delivers lots of information in an easy-to-read format with good photos and well-organized resources. Recommended.
