Amazing!

You'll go ape over Koko's Story by Dr. Fran Sean Patterson. It takes place in different zoos in America. This is a nonfiction book but fun to read. Koko and Michel are playful gorillas that love to learn sign language. The gorillas have a hard time giving up their kitten after he died but it was an adventure getting new pets and moving. Koko is my favorite character because she loves to explore the world. Koko reminds me of my cousin because he bullies me when he becomes jealous. Michael reminds me of me because we both get bullied. My text-to-self connection is I got scared of moving, just like Koko. I like this book because I love gorillas. My favorite part is when Koko caught the frog. If I could change something I would change Koko's kitten dying. Boys or girls, ages 5-13 would love this book.

Fall in love with Koko!

Did that gorilla just ask to be driven to the soda machine?! What a wonderful way to introduce animals as more than just oddities in a zoo! This book, and it's companions, makes one think seriously about our fellow creatures and how little we really know about their feelings and capabilities. It's an interesting, heartwarming, and funny acount of how Dr. Patterson taught an infant gorilla to communicate in sign language. Read it to your children before their next zoo visit.
