Good Night Gorilla Giveaway

Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.

I don’t know about your kids, but my son just loves to have me read books to him! He will go get a book and come to me and shove it in my hand as if to say, “Read to me!” And I love it. You can tell which ones are his favorites by the condition they are in, and the two that are in the worst condition are Goodnight Moon and Good Night, Gorilla.

Good Night, Gorilla is one of the sweetest kid’s books I have ever seen. The pages are very colorful and vibrant and and the words are simple and easy to read. The story setting is at the zoo. The zoo keeper is putting the animals to bed and saying good night to each, one by one. What he doesn’t know is that a mischievous little gorilla has taken his keys and let himself out of his cage. What follows is a hilarious little escapade by the gorilla and all the zoo animals!

One thing that is different about this  book, is that some of the pages actually don’t have any words to read on them. The pictures are supposed to be story enough on the pages without words. At first, I wasn’t sure what to do. I wanted to keep my son’s attention, but it’s hard if the book doesn’t have words on all the pages. After thinking about it, I decided to make up words on the pages that didn’t have any. My son loved it, and didn’t even know the difference! It was more fun for me too. Just a little imagination goes a long way!

Because I love this book so much and because I love all my readers I wanted to give you all a chance to win a copy of this book to read to YOUR kids! This was not sponsored by any company, but something I wanted to do for you! This would be a perfect book to add to your child’s Christmas gifts or even stick in a stocking.

The book is paperback and according to Amazon.com is recommended for ages 2 and up. My son has loved it since about 12 months and up. If you want to see how other parents reviewed the book, click here to visit Amazon’s reviews. Contest ends December 6th, and winner will be announced December 7th.

  1. Our son’s favorite book right now is Clifford Takes a Bath. He has the entire thing memorized and has to read it every night before bedtime. The cutest thing is there’s a part where Clifford is floating on a bar of soap then falls into the bath tub. It reads “Puppy overboard!” in the book. My son always says “Mommy, that’s not a board! That’s silly!”

    1. Awww that is so sweet! 🙂 We have a couple Clifford books too! Well, random.org picked 1# so you are the winner! Please email me your address to singingthroughtherain(at)gmail.com

  2. What a cute giveaway! Millie is a VERY big reader and we always have fun with new library books, but she really likes a book called “Too Purpley”. 🙂

    1. Never heard of the 10 minutes book, and your four year old sounds like my brother – he use to love start wars legos and star wars books! haha

  3. My 4 yr old’s fav right now is Princess Baby. Appropriate because just like Princess Baby my daughter wants to be called by her name or big girl not baby, sweetie, etc. so cute 🙂

  4. what a good idea!!

    My son LOVES it when I read to him too. He does not have a specific favorite book yet, he brings me whatever colorful book is closest. He even brought me a colorful bed bath and beyond add to “read” to him the other day!

    He does really seem to like ones with animals because we make the animal noises together. 🙂

    1. haha that’s hilarious! Adam has done stuff like that before, and I am like ” Hunny, that’s not a book!” lol

  5. You know, I don’t know that Isaac has a favorite book so much as his favorite is simply books! haha. He loves books to pieces. Literally. Fortunately, only one book has gone to pieces right now, but my little man, like Adam, will bring me books, sit in my lap and just look at the pictures while I read. I think this book would make a great addition to his little collection.

    p.s. Story time (just before bedtime) is his and my favorite time of the day!

    1. Oh my yes. Adam LOVES his books to pieces too. I can;t tell you how many times I have tried to tape them up only to fall apart again. lol

  6. A book that I have bought and shared with each one of my children because i think it is very special is “Just in Case You Ever Wonder” by Max Lucado. Really, you should check it out. It is an amazing story to read to your children!

    1. I love Max Lucado and have read a bunch of his kid’s books, but have not heard of that one. Will have to check it out. Thanks! 🙂

  7. I love reading this book called I love trains. My son loves trains and I get use all kinds of funny noises. I am going to share this on facebook
