Smallest monkeys in the world - level 1

18-03-2016 15:00

This news is about monkeys. It is about the smallest monkeys in the world. The smallest monkeys are only 100 grams heavy.

There aren’t many of these monkeys in the wild. They are in danger because people are destroying forests.

 A zoo in Sydney wants to help the monkeys. The zoo puts together two monkeys. It lets them have a family.

Two baby monkeys are born. They are beautiful and they are very, very small. They are just 15 grams heavy. They are smaller than your thumb.

Difficult words: in the wild (not in a zoo, free), destroy (to break), forest (a big group of trees).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
