We Can Help Protect Mountain Gorillas is part of a series for children on endangered species; and shows how even the youngest child can help protect them. Some of the photographs are montaged with illustrations showing children caring for gorillas. These are well conceived by illustrator Phil Velikan to accompany Gabriella Francine’s informative text. Besides saving pennies like the children in the book, young children learn empathy with gorillas by pretending “gorilla” with miniature gorillas, stuffed gorillas, or gorilla suits and pillows in a nest like the children in the book. In a classroom this could be a large unit that could not only incorporates play-acting and art, but also math, gorilla and mountain fauna biology, and a field trip to the nearest zoo. This book comes highly recommended and makes a perfect gift for the holidays or a birthday.
