5. Goodnight Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann

Goodnight Gorilla is a funny bedtime story about a naughty gorilla in a zoo. The story is a good read that can put your kid in a lighter mood and relax.

Summary:

The zookeeper goes on his nightly rounds to ensure all the animals are secured and safe inside their cages. He starts off by checking on the gorilla, a naughty one. The mischievous gorilla picks off the keys from the zookeeper and frees all the animals as they go along, tiptoeing behind him. The animals follow the sleepy zookeeper through the zoo and to his cottage. The animals settle themselves comfortably in the zookeeper’s bedroom.
The zookeeper’s wife wakes up when the animals sleepily say “good night” and is startled to see them in her room. She takes them all back to their cages, but the gorilla and his friend, the mouse, find their way back to the cottage and the bed, where they finally fall asleep.
