Good Night, Gorilla

ALA Notable Children’s Book (1994), Good Night, Gorilla is such a fun read! Almost wordless, the story revolves around sneaky Gorilla, who manages to get all of his zoo friends home with him for the night. Mrs. Zookeeper isn’t a bit impressed, and she takes it upon herself to personally escort all the animals back to their cages. Do they stay locked up for the night? And what about Mr. Zookeeper?

A super sweet book, Good Night, Gorilla is one of those laugh out loud board books enjoyed by children and adults alike. The illustrations truly tell the unspoken story as Gorilla invites the reader into his secret. Peggy Rathmann is both author and illustrator of this and several other children’s books. She can be found peggyrathmann.com.

This is one of the special books our family shared many times over when the children were younger, and now we are giving the fun adventure to a new little one, my nephew’s baby, who was born today. Enjoy!
