Gr. 3^-5. From the First Book series, this appealing, involving introduction begins with a discussion of the similarities between great apes and humans and the differences between various kinds of great apes. The heart of the book describes the physical characteristics and social interactions of each group: gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, and orangutans. A chapter on conservation efforts rounds out the book. The many color photographs are well chosen for their clarity and sensitivity as well as for their clear illustration of the text. Appendixes include a glossary, brief bibliography, and list of organizations with their addresses and Web sites.
