Counting Lions


by Katie Cotton, illustrated by Stephen Walton

This is a large non-fiction picture book focusing on endangered or threatened animals. It counts animals starting with one lion, and ending with ten zebras. The text is poetic and lyrical, but the illustrations are what make this book so amazing. Two pages at the end of the book offer more information on the endangered/threatened status of each animal.

Recommended for all ages.


Available from public libraries.
