I have lost count of how many times we have read Goodnight Gorilla in the past year and a half. Our toddlers love everything about this book and we have a very worn, well-loved copy. After reading it many times, we decided to play our own version.
Read the book Goodnight Gorilla with your child.
After they have read it several times and they have some familiarity with the story; invite them to play goodnight gorilla.
Arrange one bowl for each animal.
Give them each an animal and invite them to say "goodnight" to their animals.
Act out the book as much or as little as your child is interested.
