(Booklist ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

HASH(0x99a711e0) out of 5 stars Little Gorilla Board Book Dec 21 2009

This is a wonderful story about the reassurance of being loved that appeals to toddlers and young children. I especially like this "lap size" version of the board book because it allows the child to really delight in the colorful, warm, and witty pictures and captures expressions and personalities of the animals. The ending is endearing and children will love it.

Love this book and love the large size of it! This is my son's favorite book. It is very cute! It is about a baby gorilla whom all the animals in the forest loves and then he gets bigger and BIGGER and everyone gathers for his birthday...and even though he isn't a baby anymore, everyone still loves him.

My son loves this book. He's 13 months old and has asked us to read it to him nearly every day since he got it a month ago. He likes to imitate the gorilla. Today at a birthday party we sang happy birthday to a friend and my son made the face that Little Gorilla makes when his friends sing to him. So cute! No matter what size your child is, or what size the book is, you will love this story and pictures.
