This is a very sweet and simple counting book, good for babies and toddlers, but even older children can enjoy its beautiful artwork. ( )

I enjoy listening to Mama emphasize the word "G-o-rrrrr-i-la. ( )

This book could be read to demonstrate counting to young children such as Kendergardners. Children would probably love it because it is contains colorful illistrations. The book was illistrated and written by Atsuko Morozumi. A message that could be taken from the book is that it is okay to love a variety of things. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374456461, Paperback)

Here is a list of the things I love.
One gorilla.
Two butterflies among my flowers--and one gorilla.
Tree budgerigars in my house--and one gorilla.

One very playful gorilla keeps popping up in gardens, forests, jungles, and even people's houses as he takes the reader on a wild counting adventure. He hides--as much as a gorilla can!--along with all the other creatures as they dart, leap, and peer from the most surprising places, waiting to be counted. A chart at the end of the book provides a key to all the animals and their corresponding numbers.

Soft, precise illustrations characterize this colorful counting book.
One Gorilla is a 1990 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
