Counting Lions: Portraits from the Wild
This book shows a lot of pictures of animals, and counts from one to ten. One lion, the king of the savannah. Two gorillas, mommy and baby, always together, until the baby gorilla is old enough to climb trees by himself. Three giraffes, wondering peacefully, chewing on leaves, with their heads in the sky. Four tigers, mommy tiger, the warrior, and three little cubs: she would do anything to protect them. Five elephants, walking together in search of food and water. Six Ethiopian wolves, playing together, sleeping together, hunting together. Seven penguins, gathering to fight the snow storm. Eight turtles, always swimming in the ocean except for when it’s time to lay eggs on the beach. Nine macaws, eating nuts and seeds that they can break with their beaks, and always elegant with their beautiful colorful feathers. Ten zebras, drinking together at the river, ready to hear a predator and run away.
I liked this book because I like big pictures of animals and these were really big. The book says that all these animals are endangered, which means there are very few left on the planet. I would like one day to go to Africa and see them for real.
