Baby gorilla plays, looks, sits, smells, tastes, climbs, claps, smiles, and sleeps―just like the young readers of this book. Beautiful photographs capture an adorable baby gorilla in action. A gentle bedtime ending rounds out this action-word concept book.
“One word per page allows the focus to be on exactly what the baby gorilla is doing and the child will be able to identify with each action. Ending with sleeping, here’s hoping my own little “monkey” will crawl into bed at the end of this board book.” –Tracy Gallagher, MLIS, Collection Development
