Here is another wonderful gorilla story based on true events. Ask your child about this great picture book.
This beautiful true story is about a gorilla in the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado. Little Umande needs a mother and travels to a zoo in Columbus, Ohio to find LuLu. Students quickly fell in love with Umande and LuLu. We also visited these amazing zoos via their home websites. I thought you might enjoy a look around as well so I've attached links below. Enjoy!
