On his first trip into the world, a baby baboon meets a very slow turtle and concludes that the world is slow. But then, as his mother takes him farther afield, he sees much more: he watches a hungry crocodile, a thundering herd of elephants, a swift gazelle, a rhinoceros. He feels the heat of a fire, the softness of grass, the warmth of the sun. Throughout the day, everything he experiences expands his understanding, and when night falls, he has seen with his own eyes that the world is a big and varied place.

With its simple, rhythmic text and bold, impressionistic jungle pictures, Baboon is a book to share with children as they explore their own new worlds.

This is a charming book with great illustrations. As a gift to our four year old grandson, it was a big hit.

An engaging theme of discovering that the world is more varied than first experiences would have you believe suffers from a very dull palette. 'The muddy greens olives and browns may be true to a Baboon's forest world but lack the contrast to engage a young child. Even a brushfire is muted.

This book was a dissapointment compared to Close Your Eyes by Kate Banks with the same ilustrator Georg Hallensleben. Both stories are soothing and engaging, providing the rare developing narrrative to be found in picture books for the very young. Mother to child invokes imagination in Close Your Eyes and investigating reality in Baboon. However, in Close Your Eyes abundant blue sky sets off the orange, black-striped little tiger, the greens are bright, and the dreams conjured up by the tiger mother burst with color and surprising details.Even a rainy mountian landscape is engaging. Nature is not at all dreary.

I love a bedtime book that I can read in a whisper, and this book is a melody of soothing tones. The language is amazing; it's lovely to read, non-repetitive, and truly evocative of the quest for any mother (baboon, human, whomever) to describe the world to the hungry eyes of a young child. I'd pick this every night for bedtime reading if I could.

Baboons? Who want this kind of book? Weren't they ugliest monkeys?
No, this books shows you a very different world. Even if you're an adult, you'll find this book a nice bed time reading.

In one word, wow! I purchased this book in the hopes of finding a good children's book, but boy was I surprised when I found a collection of lovely paintings, drawings, and pressed art made from the hind quarters of various baboon species. What a find!
