A must-have board book for all babies.
Good night, Gorilla. Good night, Elephant.
It’s bedtime at the zoo, and all the animals are going to sleep. Or are they? Who’s that short, furry guy with the key in his hand and the mischievous grin?
Good night, Giraffe. Good night, Hyena.
Sneak along behind the zookeeper’s back, and see who gets the last laugh in this riotous good-night romp.
With spare text and rich illustrations, Peggy Rathman walks us through the zookeeper’s bidding the animals at the zoo goodnight. There are many funny details to seek and find on each page. The clever ending contains a bit of irony; So many toddlers take a favorite stuffy to bed, why not a gorilla?
What can you say about such a beloved classic? It’s humorous and doesn’t spell every little thing out, but provides just enough clues that my 2.5-year-old was able to piece together what was happening. As we’ve read it several times over, he enjoys pointing out how the gorilla is going to help the other animals from their cages.
