In 1997, Ted and Betsy Lewin trekked into the Impenetrable Forest in Uganda to see mountain gorillas in the wild. This real-life adventure story is the amazing saga of that trip. At moments funny, exhausting, educational, and enlightening, Gorilla Walk is filled with the wonder of nature in general--and of this magnificent animal in particular.

I don’t know if I would necessarily use this book in my classroom, but it is a great example of telling about an event. Shows students different details to a story. Explains their time walking in a jungle and they find gorillas. Grades: 3-5 Read full review

This is a good example of an informational book. It gives factual information about a Gorilla search in Uganda that the authors went on together. It tells a story but the emphasis is on the facts being presented to the reader. The information is up to date and accurate. Level: Intermediate Read full review
