The zoo keeper tucks in the animals at the zoo. Gorilla snags the keys and lets everyone out and follows the zoo keeper home to bed. Mrs. Zoo Keeper brings them back to bed, but gorilla snuggles in with the humans at the end. Cute and a quiet book to go to sleep to. Curriculum: children picture book creation

I love the mouse with its banana, and little details like the toy giraffe in the giraffe's cage. My 2 year old is enjoying this book right now. ( )

I especially like this book because of its humor. This book can be integrated into a lesson about animals (gorillas) or a nighttime.
