  • These are some amazingly fun activities to incorporate into your child’s Good Night Gorilla story time. Hands-on book activities help children remember the story but also help them learn about the real world around them. For more wonderful book loving kids activities, you should take a look at these:

    I finally figured out a way to turn Good Night Gorilla into an interactive flannel board story. First, I made each animal that appears in the picture book. I also included the zookeeper, his wife, and their bed. Then, I cut out six different colored cages to go over each animal.

  • A large appliance box can be made into a cage for children to escape from or to let stuffed animals out of. I wasn't able to obtain one, so we created a cage out of our dining room table and black streamers. I taped the streamers a few inches apart so they barely touched the floor. This allowed my little monkey to go in and out of the cage as he chose. For this zoo dramatic play, I also added various stuffed zoo animals to invite my son to play. Additionally, there was a prop bucket with items a zookeeper would use: keys, flashlight, and the Goodnight Gorilla book.

    We love Peggy Rathmann’s books! We especially love the interplay between her books – in 10 Minutes till Bedtime you can see the shadows of the zoo creatures from Goodnight Gorilla and the dolls of Officer Buckle and Gloria on the computer. Makes for a great grouping of books to read aloud, like there is a secret passing between the stories. So much fun! Happy Birthday Peggy!
