Small monkey in Brazil - level 2
A mother monkey rejected its small male baby when he was only a week old. This news is from a Brazilian zoo.
The little monkey had nothing to eat. Zookeepers had to find a substitute for the mother’s milk. Human milk is similar to monkey’s milk, so they decided to use it. The zoo asked the public for help and one breastfeeding woman responded. She said that she was happy to help.
The little monkey has been surviving for almost a week on human breast milk.
Difficult words: reject (stop caring for), substitute (something which is used instead of something because it’s similar), breastfeed (a mother who feeds her baby with milk from her breasts.
