Mosi’s grandmother was there for him right from the start! Mosi Musa is a heartwarming, hardcover children’s book that features the true story about Mosi Musa, a baby vervet monkey at the San Diego Zoo, who had a challenging start to life because his mother showed no interest in caring for him. When Mosi’s Grandma Thelma steps in to raise him, keepers are relieved. Although the human caretakers need to bottle feed the tiny monkey, Grandma Thelma does the rest: cuddling, grooming, and protecting him. Together, Mosi and Grandma Thelma show how special—and important—grandmas truly are.
Mosi Musa’s endearing story, written by Georgeanne Irvine, is illustrated with colorful and engaging photographs, and includes a section featuring fun facts about vervet monkeys. Mosi Musa,published by San Diego Zoo Global Press, is part of its Hope and Inspiration Collection.
