Instant Classic Feel

5 out of 5 stars
Target shopper - 3 years ago
Good Night Gorilla is a sweet go to book for infants- and toddlers, it is developmentally appropriate for young minds, especially those who can't sit still right before bed time. As a child development student and former nanny this is a treasured favorite.

Boring book

2 out of 5 stars

Boring & basic book. Cute idea but not executed very well. A few pages are just pictures with little to no words. Not one we will read often.
