Counting Lions (Katie Cotton)

My students were less captivated by the words in this book. It didn't mean a lot to them. We talked a lot through reading it though because they loved the pictures so much. They are amazing. They always love oversized books, as this one is too.

All the animals in the book are close to endangered.

Goodreads Summary:

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.
