Today’s book is originally a western book called “Little Gorilla” written and illustrated by Ruth Bornstein.

In Japanese the title is “Chibi Gorira no Chibi Chibi”

Enough chibis, ya think?  Chibi is a cutsie word meaning “little.”  Like itsy-bitsy or teen weeny.

So “Tiny Gorilla Tiny Tiny”


Yep, he’s tiny.  You usually are when you are just born!  But nobody stays tiny forever!
