Can You See a Chimpanzee? All About Primates by Tish Rabe- ADVISABLE

Rabe, Tish Can You See a Chimpanzee? All About Primates.  Illustrated by Joe Mathieu. Random House Children’s Books, 2014. $13.99.  

This is a great book from The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library.  This series shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time.  This series introduces beginning readers to basic non-fiction.  With the help of great illustrations and the Cat in the Hat himself, this book focuses on learning about primates.  Readers are introduced to three main primates: Monkeys, Apes and Prosimians. All of the information is given in the form of Dr. Seuss’ notorious rhyme: “A chimpanzee’s body is covered with hair, but its face and its ears and its palms are all bare.”  The illustrations are as fun as the facts presented.  This is a great informational book that children will not only enjoy reading but will present them with a lot of fun facts about primates.
