With an irresistible refrain and rollicking, read-aloud rhymes, this vividly illustrated adventure is an instant vehicle for fun!

Their travels are punctuated by the relentless refrain: "Go-go gorillas! Gotta go, gorillas, go!" Taylor's busy, colorful watercolors track the chaos and the joy as the family welcomes a new baby. Though the story itself is slight, the rhyme and repetition make it a bouncy read-aloud for transportation units.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MDCopyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier I
"Three Stars" according to N. Smith. This is an OK book but not as cute as "Cha-Cha Chimps.". Cute book AvidReader I bought this book for my granddaughter because we both adore Cha Cha Chimps by the same author. This one wasn't nearly as good, either in terms of the learning possibilities or the rhymes, but it was still fun and educational. I probably would have given it a better review had we read this one first.. "My 2 year old's new favorite book!" according to Sarah Jenkins. This is a fantastic book! My 2 year old loves to read this book and is able to chant many of the lines - great rhyming & cadencemaking it enjoyable for adults as well. I buy stuff on Amazon all the time & I never post a reviewthis book deserved a rave review!
