Counting Lions

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Counting lions is a beautifully illustrated counting book with a strong conservation message. Beginning with one lion and ending with ten zebras, the text is used to carefully describe the behaviour of the animal. Stephen Walton's full page black and white illustrations show each animal in compelling detail. The illustrations and text combine to create a glorious wildlife book which can be enjoyed by the whole family.

The foreword by Virginia McKenna and the inclusion of many animals that are either vulnerable or endangered encourages the reader to celebrate the beauty of these animals and take steps to protect them. A delightful picture book with a very serious message.
