Description
The Cat learns about primates--from marmoset monkeys to silverback gorillas--in this latest addition to the Cat in the Hat's Learning Library series Traveling in his open-air Chimpmobile, the Cat takes Nick and Sally to Africa, Asia, and Madagascar, where they meet a barrel full of "monkeys," including mandrills, marmosets, gorillas, gibbons, gallagos, tarsiers, tamarin, pottos, bonobos--you name it Along the way they learn the basic characteristics of primates (among them hands that can grasp and forward-facing eyes); how to tell the difference between an ape and a monkey (most monkeys have tails; apes don't); and most amazingly--that people are primates, too Fans of the hit PBS Kids show" The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That " (which is based on the Cat in the Hat's Learning Library) will go bananas over this latest addition to the series.
