"Sweet book about a gorilla named Albert who is born with extra-large feet. Albert is embarrassed by his difference despite his parents reminding him that he is perfect. After an adventure in the woods Albert learns to love and appreciate his huge feet! This book has advanced vocabulary (it's always important to read books with vocabulary that is above a child's level), a sweet story that teaches about differences, a problem, and a solution. I will read this book with my students." - Olympia School District
"What a delightful picture book! The illustrations are beautiful and the soft, muted colors and lines make it very soothing. The story is one that many children (and adults) will relate to. It's a valuable resource for children who need a little help appreciating what makes them different." - Seminole County Public Library
"I enjoyed this book. It was a sweet story about learning to love who you are even when you are different. I really liked that Albert's family and friend encouraged Albert to see himself the way they did, perfectly and beautifully made." - Grant Public Library
