Kids Corner: Goodnight Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann

Goodnight Gorilla is another one of my little monkey's favorite books. It is very simple with very few words. I often find myself making up additions to the story on the pages that don't have written words. Even more amusing is when the monkey starts telling the story. Of course he's heard many variations depending on who read to him last and weaves them together to make the story his own.

The basic story follows the zookeeper closing down the zoo for the night and saying goodnight to all of the animals. As he's doing this, the entire zoo follows him home.

It is not uncommon for monkey to ask for this one to be read repeatedly in one sitting. I'm not sure how long we've been reading this one to him, probably since he was about a month old.

I'll have to see about this one for my little grandsons. We call one of them 'our little monkey' so this book seems perfect! Thanks :)
