Counting Lions (Katie Cotton)
All the animals in the book are close to endangered.
A spectacular, visually stunning celebration of wildlife—and gentle counting book—that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
Exquisite charcoal drawings of ten endangered creatures—lions, elephants, giraffes, pandas, tigers, chimpanzees, penguins, turtles, macaws, and zebras—startle the viewer with their size and astonishing detail. A poetic text notes each creature’s particular qualities and behavior, while providing a quiet counting exercise and a reminder that these animals must be cherished and protected.
