Goodnight, Gorilla

A tired little boy, reading at the end of the day

Playing with his little monkey toes.

A month ago Ronan received a gift from his BFF Laurin- it was a copy of Peggy Rathmann's sweet bedtime story Goodnight Gorilla. We now read the book often, during which Ronan has two notable, adorable reactions. The first- he plays with his feet & toes, as if he himself were a little Gorilla. The second- when we get to the page that the cheeky gorilla is caught sneaking into the zookeeper's house, Ronan always starts to chuckle. Fun stories like Goodnight Gorilla make bedtime one of the best parts of the day.

It looks like mom is the one going to sleep here :-) And I think it's fair to say "Goodnight Gorilla" is much more appropriate for Ronan than "Goodnight Bush"! Maybe Uncle Todd & Aunt Melissa can write a sequel - "Goodnight Orangutan" :-)
