New Children’s Books
A Day in the Life: Orangutan by Anita Ganeri suits children ages 4-8. It is a mixture of striking pictures and has easy to read bold text. A fantastic introduction to this beautiful ape.
We also have a much more informative book for children aged 9-14, Animals Under Threat: Orangutan by David Orme. This is a fascinating resource for young people who are already interested in rainforest animals. It gives an insight in to the lives of orangutans, explores the reasons they are being driven close to extinction and even features a short section about the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre.
These books make ideal Christmas presents for young enquiring minds!
