Format: Hardcover
This book does not say that we are descendent of the chimp, but rather that we belong to the same family.
The theory of natural evolution is never mentioned.
In any case, this book is really fantastic.

This is a lovely book, both charming and beautiful. Vicky White's illustrations are breathtaking. Martin Jenkins words are poetry to be appreciated by children and adults. Ape is gorgeous and touching.

By Educator on October 11, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The text in this book is good, but it almost seems superfluous compared to the absolutely incredible artwork. As an artist and an educator, I find these depictions of the apes not only accurate but engaging for all ages. Yes, it mentions that humans are apes, but scientists categorize animals by like features and we are classified as apes, whether you are a student of evolution or not.
