Have you ever felt ordinary?
The Gorilla Picked Me! is about little Olive who felt ordinary, always picked last for teams at recess, and never a Valentine placed on her desk. Until one day at a dance with her daddy, she is picked from the crowd by the dancing gorilla. It is at that moment that Olive realizes -she is not ordinary!
This fun and sentimental story shows how one small act of love can have a huge impact.
There is a mystery in the story. Children love finding clues as to who is in that gorilla suit.
