People from a zoo are parents for a baby gorilla. The little gorilla was born in January in Texas. Her mother left the little gorilla. Ten people are her parents now.

People want to find a real gorilla mother for her. It can take some months. Before it happens, people must help the little gorilla. They will do what gorillas do with their babies. For example, they will have special black clothes which look like a gorilla. People say that the little gorilla is OK and grows quickly.

Interesting words: look like (be like), grow (be bigger and bigger).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
