1st-4th grade

Patterson wrote a book that all children will love. She tells the story of Gorilla that became good friends with a kitten. This story is filled with pages of real pictures taken by Ronald Cohn of the Gorilla, Koko, and her kitten friend. There is about one picture a page and most of them have titles explaining what is happening in the picture. The reading is easy for 1st-3rd graders because it is about 30 pages of large font reading. There is about 15-25 sentences per page and it is easy reading. This story can be connected to children because they can relate to it with their own love of animals of any kind.

Science/Language Arts

Students can bring in picture of their pets or favorite animal and write a story about the animal.
