"A good concept, minimal text, and excellent photos make this book a standout for babies and toddlers." --Booklist on What Is Baby Gorilla Doing?

"This winning board book capitalizes on children's natural fascination with the animal kingdom to teach kids the names of 18 of their favorite activities. Beautifully photographed infant gorillas play, look, lift, sit, taste, clap, eat, and sleep, among other actions, all set against changing monochromatic backgrounds." --Kirkus Reviews on What Is Baby Gorilla Doing?

"It's a cleanly designed introduction to a gorilla's daily life, full of activities that will be familiar to the book's young readers, too." --Publishers Weekly on What Is Baby Gorilla Doing?

"the gorillas in this book are adorable! . . . Ending with sleeping, here's hoping my own little "monkey" will crawl into bed at the end of this board book." --Ingram on What Is Baby Gorilla Doing?

"A fascinating, eye-opening introduction to gorillas, particularly those living in captivity." --Booklist, starred review, on Gorillas Up Close

"In this visually arresting work, Nippert-Eng bridges the gap between gorillas and humans. . . Subject matter includes the expected (habitat, diet, and care for this endangered species) to the delightfully unanticipated (how to identify a gorilla and tips for watching and photographing). . . . engaging animal nonfiction for upper elementary and middle school collections. Highly recommended." --School Library Journal on Gorillas Up Close

"The photos really steal the show . . . a series of portraits--including "formal" head shots--capture not just individual facial features (as diverse as any group of humans) and an amazing range of expressions, but also a powerful, dignified presence in each of about two dozen primates." --Kirkus Reviews on Gorillas Up Close
