Goodnight Gorilla Themed Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Zoos are one of our favourite themes here on Virtual Book Club for Kids. We love the range of animals that you can explore with your children and with just a few little extras you can set up a week of zoo activities easily with no problems. This year our featured book for the theme is Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann a classic story and one that your children will enjoy reading at bedtime or during the day.

Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann is a classic story in which the zookeeper goes around the zoo saying Good Night to the various animals that it finds and the funny Gorilla gets up to a little bit of mischief behind his back. We love this fun tale and can’t believe we haven’t featured it here before!
