    1. I've been reading photoessays by this author out of order. They are concisely written, accompanied by amazing color photographs and are sure to spark and hold children's interest in the animal world.

    2. Clear text and heart-melting photographs introduce young readers to orangutans under the care of Dr. Mary Gladikas at her orangutan rescue and rehabilitation center in Borneo. Eszterhas provides excellent information about orangutans, their behavior, endangered status and conservation efforts.Outstanding full page photographs are an irresistible stand-out feature. Wonderful book to read to primary students. Would be ideal for a classroom setting or to hand to young scientists.

    3. I had no idea that there were so many orphaned orangutans in Borneo. These pictures are so adorable, I want to be a caregiver! These sweet babies are so similar to human's because we share much of the same DNA. Very informative book.

    4. This book makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. To a Quote from the TV show Gilmore Girls "We can't have a mouse in our inn " "Tell people it is a baby mouse, people love babies". Same here, everyone loves babies and baby orangutan are AH-DOOR-A-BLE! (adorable) . Sad that they are orphaned babies but they are super cute. Nice book, informative with great photography. Nice book about taking care of animalsl animals!!

    5. Amazing photographs and great information. I like the layout of the book- each chapter is one two-page spread with a full page photo on one side and the text on the other with more photos. Chapters can be read a few at a time or all in one read. I would love to share some of this with kindergarten and first graders!

    6. gr 1-5Awesome awesome awesome book. Fantastic photography and great story about rescuing organgutans. Makes you think twice about buying peanut butter with palm oil. Too cute for words. Wide age range because can talk about photos for younger ones. I shared with first and second grade tour and shared pictures.

    7. A heartwarming and informational book about what happens when orangutans are orphaned and how people help them to survive and feel loved and nurtured. This would be a great book for children or students who are interested in learning more about orangutans; specifically (as the title states) orangutan orphanages.

    8. LOVE Suzi's photos for kids' books and clear delivery of facts that help kids empathize with the plight of the animals she discusses. I believe I've read every one of her books and they seem to keep getting even better. Makes me want to go visit Borneo and Sumatra and adopt an orphaned orangutan myself!

    9. Such compelling photographs -- impossible not to fall in love with these baby orangutans.This one booktalks itself!

    10. I will definitely check to see which products I have containing Palm Oil. A very informative book, with terrific pictures.

    11. Photographs are used to tell the story of Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine in Borneo. This is an orphanage for baby orangutans.

    12. A shining example of how to save and rehabilitate animals without exploiting them. The workers at this facility are so wonderful!
