Editorial Reviews

Review

Little Gorilla's velvety-soft world seems as comfortably secure as the story's evocation of love and friendship.

This is my very favorite book out my 21-month-old son's collection of about 50 board books. I love the first few pages--it reminds me of when our parents & close friends came to the hospital the day my son was born. We also sing "Happy Birthday" at the end. We do some baby sign language too when reading the book. Makes a treasured gift for newborns on up to preschoolers. It's nice to have a book that interests a baby but that also tells a story, i.e., not a picture book with one word per page.

Format: Board book
This is a darling book that will strike a chord with any parent (grandparent, aunt, friend, etc.) who thinks a certain child is the most special kid in the world. The book is very simple and sweet and basically tells the story of a little baby gorilla whom everyone in the jungle adores and that even when the gorilla grows up and becomes a big gorilla, he is loved just the same. It's a nice way to say, "You'll always be special" or "You'll always be our baby".

As a single mother with an adopted daughter and an extended family of friends, this is the perfect book to share with my child. Even though all the animals look different, they all love little gorilla and help him out. Also, great for learning animal names and some colors. What a great book! I hope it never goes out of print.

My son was 3 when I bought him Little Gorilla. His sisters were 8 and 10, and he was often frustrated that they could do things he wasn't allowed to do. Little Gorilla was his favorite bedtime story. What he liked most was that Little Gorilla grew, and grew, and grew, until Little Gorilla was BIG! He was surrounded by love and affection that didn't go away once Little Gorilla grew big. I'm buying a new copy of "Little Gorilla" for my future grandchildren. It is a sweet, gentle story, that will always be meaningful to small children and the people who love them.

This is a lovely, sweet book, which shows that adults continue to love a child as he grows. This would be especially nice to give to a toddler with a new, cute younger sibling.

When I visited my ... granddaughter recently, she "read" this book aloud to me, having committed to memory every page. The book is absolutely charming! She loves it at her age, but it would have been one of those books like GOODNIGHT MOON that she would have loved as a less than year old baby. From now on this book, not nearly as well known as MOON, will be one of those that I give to new mothers and their babies. Simply charming!

This is a classic story and a WONDERFUL gift for a first birthday. I have two boys (2.5 and 1) and we love the story so bought it for a friend, I was sad when it arrived because it is a very small book. The version we have is a large board book, this one was very tiny. Anyway, it is a wonderful book that we will read for years to come.

This book is one of my 18 month old's two MUST READS before bedtime. (along with Goodnight Moon) It is a cute story about the gorilla, and how everybody loves him - from when he was one day old, to when he grew to be big.
