NEW BOOK! How Smart is a Lemur?

Brain power: Lemurs are amazing animals. These small creatures look like a cross between a cat and a squirrel. Scientists at Duke University are testing them to find out how smart they really are. Find out what they are discovering in this book.

Illustrated with spectacular color photographs, this 24 page book is written for fourth grade readers.  It is part of the Fountas Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention program. Like my book Octopus, Escape Artist of the Sea, How Smart is a Lemur? is in the Intriguing Animals series. My book Sneezes and Sniffles is also in the Fountas Pinnell LLI program.

I visited the Duke Lemur Center in Durham, North Carolina to learn about lemurs and meet with some of the people who work with them.  You can read about my visit at my travel blog, The Intrepid Tourist.
