Willy is the silliest gorilla! No matter what animal he tries to imitate, he is "Still a gorilla!" With adorable illustrations and text that kids can easily repeat, this book is my new favorite!

Adorable! Willy contemplates how he can become different animals from around the zoo. Children are asked if Willy does X, will he become the animal? Then you turn the page and see that no, Willy is still a gorilla. There is a great repeat children will quickly catch on and be able to recipe with readers. The pictures are simple, but engaging and fill the pages with bright colors. I really liked how the author asks "Will he?" through out the book. It is fun to ask the children if they noticed how the gorilla's name is Will-he (willy)? and see how many of them pick up on it.

Silliness abounds. Good choice for an action based storytime. Reminiscent of Eric Carle's From Head to Toe.

This read-aloud for toddlers and preschoolers celebrates being silly AND self-confident! The animal actions, colorful illustrations, and repetition make this great for movement storytimes.
