5.0 out of 5 stars Little Gorilla Board Book Dec 21 2009
By Barb L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
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 loved this as one of the first books he would pay attention to. He loved the part where the Gorilla gets HUGE! which is why we went for the lap-size edition of this board book instead of the smaller one where the effect isn't as impressive. It is a great story for telling little ones that we all love them and always will.

This was such a fun book with engaging pictures and a fun story line - as we grow, we are still so loved. I loved the size of this one and so does my little one.
