Little Gorilla Board Book Dec 21 2009
By Barb L. - Published on
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 It! May 24 2010

Format: Board book
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.
Yay for Little Gorilla! Jan. 17 2010

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.

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.
