Praise For Gorilla

"A splendid offering that provides young readers with just the right amount of information and stunning photographs, 'Gorilla' is a great read." - Kendal A. Rautzhan, syndicated newspaper columnist

"While the storyline reads like a children’s book, the photographs could be in National Geographic... I give these books my Alaskan Mom Approval and recommend them to any animal loving family. The combination of photography and engaging storyline make these a regular in our bedtime story rotation." - AK Mom Approved blog

"Far, far away, in the misty mountains of Africa, a baby gorilla is born. The tiny bundle of black fur needs to be looked after just like a human baby. Mom is with her all the time, holding the baby close to her big chest and keeping her warm and safe."
