I don’t know about your kids, but my son just loves to have me read books to him! He will go get a book and come to me and shove it in my hand as if to say, “Read to me!” And I love it. You can tell which ones are his favorites by the condition they are in, and the two that are in the worst condition are Goodnight Moon and Good Night, Gorilla.
Good Night, Gorilla is one of the sweetest kid’s books I have ever seen. The pages are very colorful and vibrant and and the words are simple and easy to read. The story setting is at the zoo. The zoo keeper is putting the animals to bed and saying good night to each, one by one. What he doesn’t know is that a mischievous little gorilla has taken his keys and let himself out of his cage. What follows is a hilarious little escapade by the gorilla and all the zoo animals!
One thing that is different about this book, is that some of the pages actually don’t have any words to read on them. The pictures are supposed to be story enough on the pages without words. At first, I wasn’t sure what to do. I wanted to keep my son’s attention, but it’s hard if the book doesn’t have words on all the pages. After thinking about it, I decided to make up words on the pages that didn’t have any. My son loved it, and didn’t even know the difference! It was more fun for me too. Just a little imagination goes a long way!
