Gr 1-3 Using simple sentences, Thomson explains the basic facts of gorilla life, including their behavior, diet, and habitat. The author devotes a lot of space to the similarities shared by these animals and humans, highlighting how gorillas are part of a family, play with their children, and communicate. The last section describes how scientists study these primates and emphasizes the destruction of their habitat and the need to protect them from harm. While the readable text is presented in large print, it is somewhat dense, often filling the pages. Also, some of the full-color photos are not very well reproduced. For example, a wonderful image of a mother and baby interacting is blurry. This book has a very specific message and will provide newly independent readers with a solid introduction.--Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
