Shelves: gorillas, painting
Asher (4yo), for reasons I'm not sure about, really loves this book. It's a cute story about a gorilla who becomes rich painting pictures and what she decide to do with her new found wealth.

Cute, entertaining illustrations.

This has been a favorite book at our house. I like the way the illustrations help the kids see the world through another point of view (the gorilla's). And, I like to watch their delight when they discover how the gorilla decides to spend his money.
