Editorial Reviews

Review

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

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.

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".

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.

One of my all time favorite books I read to all 3 of my kids, and now I'm buying copies to share with my grandbaby / great nieces & nephews. Beautiful story to remind children that they are still loved & valued as they grow!

This is about a 'Little Gorilla' growing up and having his 1st Birthday. As a board book, what could be better for a 1st Birthday? We opt to buy books instead of birthday cards. We always write a message on the inside cover...but this one didn't really have a place to write a message on the inside cover, so we wrote it on the cover. lol He will always know this book is from his Grandparents and that we will always love him....no matter how big he gets.

My daughter loves this book, it is her favorite. I had it when I was young, as far as I can tell and remember it is the entire book. Book is a little smaller than some of the board books we have though.

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.

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.
