Orangutan: A Day in the Rainforest Canopy Written and Illustration by Rita Goldner
When a young orangutan wakes in his nest of leaves, his day in the rainforest begins. He swings through the canopy searching for food, visits the river below, and encounters other Borneo wildlife—some of which create great danger. At day’s end, he settles into a new nest of leaves, ready for another adventure tomorrow. Also includes glossary and fun facts. More fun facts and related activities are available on Goldner’s blogsite.
Colorful and whimsical illustrations. A book to engage children in learning about the natural world and its endangered species.
