Order the Hardcover Version instead of the Board Book Version

1.0 out of 5.0 by John on March 11, 2015
I recommend hardcover version instead of the board book. The pictures are cut off on the board book because it is so small (about the size of my hand). The illustrations are what make this book so great. If you and your child like the book, I suggest the full hardcover version. The difference in the cost is not worth the savings.
Pure Delight

5.0 out of 5.0 by Pachamama on September 22, 2017
A childhood classic! Peggy Rathman's magnum opus, which is a must for every library. We started reading this to my daughter, who is now five, when she was around 10 months old, and it is still her all time favorite book. One of her first words was "Rilla, Rilla," which is what she called it, and how she asked for this book by name, daily. This is a "storyteller's" book, mostly images, which allows both the reader and the listener to improvisationally enter into the hilarious imaginary, nocturnal world of a small zoo as its caretaker shuts it down for the night, trailed by a fun-loving, trickster gorilla who not only (spoiler alert) tiptoes behind the zookeeper/night watchman as he first locks the gates and then sneakily unlocks each one and frees the rest of the animals, but then follows the caretaker, animals in tow, to his home, where someone...is in for a surprise! From the time she was a baby until now at age 5, my daughter still bursts into gleeful fits of laughter in the book's "surprise" moment, and in fact--the look on the character's face was one of the very first imitations of a facial expression she ever did, and her very first attempt at humor--we owe to this book! A milestone. Because of that, this book is so beloved in our house, it's like a family member or a longtime friend: always welcome, always funny, always a delight--and never grows old. "Rilla Rilla" for life!
Vibrant Images but Cropped

4.0 out of 5.0 by Michael DeCato on January 12, 2017
This is a very nice board book. The colors are vastly brighter than the paper edition and it's perfect for babies and toddlers that have a tendency to tear pages. My only issue with this edition is that the images are not scaled down to fit the reduced size of the book from the original. It is as though they used the same size images from the original copy (which is about 20% to 30% larger than this book) and they cropped them. This doesn't completely take away from book, though, and there is still enough of the images for the story. I just wish it was a bit bigger to get the full images.-1 star for the cropped images, but otherwise this is a great edition of this book.
Goodnight Goodnight Goodnight

4.0 out of 5.0 by K. Kroll on February 24, 2016
This one isn't my husband's favorite, because he says it's too long and the zookeeper is bad at his job. But my 20-month-old son and I love it. I've read it to him since he was a baby.My son's favorite part is when the zookeeper's wife hears all the animals say goodnight, sits up with her eyes wide open and turns on the light to find a smiling gorilla in bed with her. He turns the pages to repeat that over and over.I like that the illustrations are very detailed, and I can find different things to point out to my son as I narrate the story like the zookeeper's name or that the armadillo has a bottle and pacifier or the banana peel on the last page. When he gets older, I'll ask him who he thinks ate the banana and what he thinks will happen when the zookeeper wakes up in the morning.The reason I am taking off a star is that our first copy fell apart, and I ordered a second copy. My son loves to turn the pages and was rough with the book. But, I think the bookbinding and spine are done a bit too loosely and that makes it easier to tear apart.
Half picture book, Half story

3.0 out of 5.0 by Dee on March 14, 2019
I needed a break from Goodnight Moon (the only book my 15 month old will listen to uninterrupted, so I went in search of other Goodnight books and stumbled upon this one. Given the reviews, I decided to give it a whirl. It's not a hit in our home.The story is simple, will only a few words per page, which should be a plus, but there are several pages with no text - only pictures. I think some kids might enjoy this, but for some reason, mine doesn't. There are 3 double sided pages toward the middle of the book with only pictures and 3 more at the end. The pictures advance the story, but my 15 month old doesn't really get it. I try to make up things and point out what's in the pictures, but she inevitably loses interest. This might be good for a slightly younger child that just wants to look at the pictures or a slightly older child that can tell that the pictures are advancing the story without words.I did purchase the board book version and as one reviewer noted, a lot of the pictures are cut off. I decided that mattered less than durability at this point as my little one likes to "read" on her own and often destroys books with paper pages.The illustrations are lovely and the colors are nice and vibrant, I also think it's a cute story, I just wish there was more to it.
Amateurishly done Kindle Version

1.0 out of 5.0 by ThirstyPrisoner on April 3, 2016
My son loves the physical version of this book, so we grabbed the Kindle version to take along on trips. Unfortunately, the artwork is relegated to a thin strip in the middle of the page making it difficult to really enjoy. What's worse, the artwork is cropped on some pages so that vital details are cut out. My son loved finding the hidden balloon on each page. Too bad that it was completely cropped out on some pages in this version. I'm not sure what publishers find so difficult in converting books to an acceptable Kindle format, but this book continues the trend of low resolution images, poorly utilized space, and a seeming lack of care for the original work.
