I loved Ranger Rick magazine when I was in the first grade, and this is an excellent book to use to start studying animals! The text is set in boxes on top of very nice (if sometimes slightly dark) photographs, so children will know what gorillas look like in their natural habitat. The information is presented in a way that will make sense for children, and this book would make a great read aloud or read along, because then children could be asked about how their own lives are similar and different from the gorillas'.
There are a lot of picture books and leveled readers that cover the topics of animals, and Ranger Rick also has similar books on lions, orcas, elephants and other animals. These books could be a lot of fun on a Saturday or summer vacation day devoted to a particular animal. Combined with crafts and recipes, I can see a four year old being enthralled with the idea of being a gorilla for the day!
