Got a child who likes poetry and learning about exotic animals from all over the world? You should check out Vanilla Gorilla, written by David Harrow and illustrated by Judith Krimski. The illustrations were created using a technique called collage art, and they are quite exquisite. Your child will feel like they are traveling the world as they learn about many different exotic animals from all different types of habitats. You’ll read clever verse about animals like the aye-aye and the fanolaka! Some of these scientific names can be difficult to pronounce, but you and your child will certainly have fun learning together as you flip through all 25 pages. They have even left space at the end of the book for your child to create their very own page about a favorite creature, which can then be shared on the Vanilla Gorilla Facebook page. Kids of all ages will enjoy Vanilla Gorilla, but it’s probably best for the school-aged child. Check it out today!
I was given a copy of Vanilla Gorilla to take part in this review.
