"Snuggles' Japanese Alps Adventure" by Tim Ostermeyer is a breathtakingly beautiful book all about the early life of an adorable monkey named Snuggles. Ostermeyer uses a clear talent with photography to document the early life of this particular monkey, as he plays with his friend, snuggles with his mother, and travels to the hot springs before the weather gets too cold. Along the way he learns valuable lessons, guided by Bible verses.
The photography in this book is absolutely amazing. Children will absolutely love following Snuggles on his journey to the hot springs, and learning about this adorable monkey and his family. The story itself is relatively easy to understand, so I would recommend it for ages 4 and up. The only part of the book that didn't really seem to fit was the brief discussion on evolution - the wording was confusing for young children, and difficult to really understand. While this could be used to open a discussion about evolution, I think that for the age this book was created for, it just overcomplicated things.
I would give this book a 4 / 5, and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking to keep their child's bookshelf wholesome, and Bible-friendly.
