Primate School


Gorillas using iPads, lemurs finger painting, squirrel monkeys blowing bubbles..these primates are pretty smart! Could you make the grade in Primate School? Learn how diverse the primate family is, and some of the ways humans are teaching new skills to their primate cousins. Author Jennifer Keats Curtis is once again working with organizations across the country to share fun facts about primates through this photo journal.

I found this book to be really rather amazing! I loved the photos and discovering how these primates are learning new skills such as using an iPad. A remarkable book and highly recommend for ages 4-8.

The Creative Minds section includes some really great activities such as Talk Like a Chimp and Primate or Not?

Find this delightful book at Arbordale Publishing.
