Summary

High in the trees of the rainforest in Sumatra, a baby orangutan is born. Follow her from birth to adulthood, as she learns to look after herself. See her eating her first solid food -- mashed fruit, learning to climb, and relaxing in the "nest." She will stay with her mom, learning how to survive in the forest, until she is five years old.Also available in the Eye on the Wild series:Gorilla Cheetah Brown Bear Lion Sea Otter

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Wildlife photographer Eszterhas' up-close photographs of a young Sumatran orangutan in the wild are stunning. From the inquisitive baby's eyes on the cover to the tender clutching-her-mama photo on the first page, Eszterhas captures the exact attributes of a baby orangutan that endear it to humans. She follows the baby from birth to maturity at age six and captures the close relationship between baby and mother. The book highlights milestones for the young orangutan: the crucial early months; four months of age, when she begins to eat fruit; one year old, when climbing lessons begin; four years old, when she explores the wider world; five years old, when she explores on her own; and six years old, when she is fully grown. The fairly simple text tracks with the photographs to make it approachable, yet engaging, for emerging readers. Other than brief lapses into familiar language and personification, the book is accurate, dependable, and happily fills its niche.--Petty, J. B. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A baby orangutan accompanies her mother throughout the Sumatran rainforest in this addition to the Eye on the Wild series. Eszterhas's vivid photographs chronicle the orangutan's early life as her mother teaches her to find fresh leaves, fruit, and bugs, as well as climb and swing from the trees. The text strikes a gentle balance between light anthropomorphism ("It's a bit scary at first without Mom but she remembers all the things Mom has taught her about living in the forest"), and factual details about the species. Readers should be fascinated by the orangutans' supple movements as they travel the jungle canopy and may observe how their interactions are not so different from the tenderness shared between a human mother and child.
