The Okomi stories are based upon real events and natural chimp behavior in the wild as observed by Jane Goodall. Dr. Goodall discovered that chimpanzee babies and their mothers play little games, such as tickling each other, that bonded them closely together. The Okomi books are based on these observations, telling simple stories covering issues of fear, playfulness, laughter, surprise, and new experiences. Young children and their parents will find the stories engaging, comforting, and even instructive, while encouraging an interest in animals and nature.
In this story, Mama proudly shows up with baby Okomi. His arrival is exciting news among the chimpanzees! Then his big, powerful Dada comes.

Helen and Clive Dorman are creators of the Children’s Project, an organization dedicated to producing goods to support the pre-school family. With the full cooperation of Jane Goodall and The Jane Goodall Institute, the Dormans have produced the Okomi children’s book series. The Okomi stories are developed from Jane Goodall’s observations of chimpanzee behavior. As shown in these books, the chimpanzee mother/infant relationship is virtually identical to that of its human counterpart.Review:
