This book invites children to explore the fascinating world of orangutans. Young readers can learn how baby orangutans spend up to eight years with their mothers, gradually gaining the independence to survive in the forest, and how they use their long arms to travel through the tree tops and build new nests each evening to sleep in. With their expressive faces and personalities, and their close genetic relationship to humans -- with about 96% identical genes -- they captivate us. "About the series: " Each book in the Welcome to the World of Series introduces children to wildlife through color photographs, lively description and amazing facts.
