Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"A baby orangutan accompanies her mother throughout the Sumatran rainforest in this addition to the Eye on the Wild series. Eszterhas's vivid photographs chronicle the orangutan's early life as her mother teaches her to find fresh leaves, fruit, and bugs, as well as climb and swing from the trees. The text strikes a gentle balance between light anthropomorphism ('It's a bit scary at first without Mom but she remembers all the things Mom has taught her about living in the forest'), and factual details about the species. Readers should be fascinated by the orangutans' supple movements as they travel the jungle canopy and may observe how their interactions are not so different from the tenderness shared between a human mother and child. Available simultaneously: Sea Otter. Ages 4 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

High in the trees of the rainforest in Sumatra, a baby orangutan is born. Follow her from birth to adulthood, as she learns to look after herself. See her eating her first solid food — mashed fruit, learning to climb, and relaxing in the "nest." She will stay with her mom, learning how to survive in the forest, until she is five years old.

Also available in the Eye on the Wild series:

Gorilla

Cheetah

Brown Bear

Lion

Sea Otter
