Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Wildlife photographer Eszterhas’ up-close photographs of a young Sumatran orangutan in the wild are stunning. From the inquisitive baby’s eyes on the cover to the tender clutching-her-mama photo on the first page, Eszterhas captures the exact attributes of a baby orangutan that endear it to humans. She follows the baby from birth to maturity at age six and captures the close relationship between baby and mother. The book highlights milestones for the young orangutan: the crucial early months; four months of age, when she begins to eat fruit; one year old, when climbing lessons begin; four years old, when she explores the wider world; five years old, when she explores on her own; and six years old, when she is fully grown. The fairly simple text tracks with the photographs to make it approachable, yet engaging, for emerging readers. Other than brief lapses into familiar language and personification, the book is accurate, dependable, and happily fills its niche. Preschool-Grade 2. --J. B. Petty


"She is so weak she can barely raise her head. But her little fingers are very strong and she will use them to cling to her mum’s long red fur. The orangutan mum holds her baby close, to keep her safe and warm in the wet jungle." — from the book
