Little Gorilla, Ruth Bornstein

little gorillaIt’s always nice to find a real winner for the pre-k set.  Little Gorilla is one of those affirming books that makes everyone, listener and reader feel good.

Little Gorilla is loved from the day he is born.  His mom and dad love him, his aunts and uncles love him, all the animals in the forest love him and help him.  Until one day…Little Gorilla grows.  My students all wonder what will happen when Little Gorilla grows.  They wait expectantly until I start singing “Happy Birthday”.  They all smile in relief and join in.  The last page says, “And everyone still loved him.”
