Gorillas and apes seem so boring because they sleep all day, but really they are quite the party animals! When it’s dark, they party and dance their hearts out when they think no humans are watching. Jungle Jed tries to get them to go to bed, but they fake it until he leaves. And just when they think they’ve been busted, Jungle Jed joins the fun and dances the night away with them!
Go Go Gorrillas is a fun book that children will love to read at bedtime and any time. The illustrations fill the page and cause the reader to pause as they look at all the excitement happening in the pictures. The story is told in a cute, rhyming manner that makes it fun to read and easy to laugh. It could be used to show kids that if they want to stay up all night having fun, they will be too tired to do anything fun the next day!
