In the highest branches of a rain forest tree, a monkey is hanging by its tail from a branch as it gathers tasty leaves with its small hands. The acrobatic tree-dweller is a spider monkey, and it’s foraging for food high in the treetops with members of its family.

Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its second-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume introduces young readers to the everyday life of a spider monkey. Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to make scientific observations based on the book’s images and answer questions about the lives and physical characteristics of these agile creatures. This innovative approach to teaching about wild animals gives young scientists the chance not only to read and learn the facts, but also to develop their own powers of observation and critical thinking.

Spider Monkey

Part of the Treed series, this introduces spider monkeys, who spend their days swinging through the rain forests of Central and South America. Although this volume is slim, it is full of interesting information (albeit occasionally repetitive). Some of that comes in the large-print, short-sentenced text, while other bits and pieces arrive in captions of the color photographs. Readers will learn what spider monkeys eat, how they travel through trees, and what family life is like for the community. The photos, many close-up looks, will intrigue primary-grade students. An appended craft—making a clay monkey—adds some fun to the presentation.
