From the Series My First Animal Library
In Monkeys, beginning readers will learn how monkeys survive in the wild. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage early readers as they discover the many ways a monkey uses its hands.
A labeled diagram helps readers identify a monkey’s body parts, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about monkeys online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Monkeys also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.
Monkeys is part of Jump!’s My First Animal Library series.

These titles all have boldly colored page layouts. Full-page photographs draw readers in and show detailed parts of the title animals, their predators, food, eggs/babies, and habitat. Most page spreads consist of controlled vocabulary, emergent reading text. Each book begins with information about the animal’s activity at night followed by “Parts of the Body,” “Picture Glossary,” and “To Learn More.” The latter feature provides a safe, relevant site for beginning web searchers. Pages that highlight terms are separated in a bright contrasting text box, making a strong visual impact. This series is recommended for libraries in need of more primary nonfiction titles.
