Book Play with Goodnight Gorilla

 Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann is a minimal text story.
It lends itself well to children reading the pictures to explain what is happening.

Sharing a story and then retelling it are important steps in learning to read.
Adding props encourages interest in the book and can lead to further 
language development.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                   For example this child who noticed one animal had a tail, she then searched each animal and discovered they all have tails.
Reading together is a wonderful way to spend a few minutes with your child
and can encourage a life long enjoyment of reading.
