Counting Lions: Portraits from the Wild - Katie Cotton, Stephen Walton

The title Counting Lions (Candlewick, $22) and the deceptively simple nature of Katie Cotton’s prose may make this seem like just another counting book; Cotton’s poetic text, however, draws attention not only to the ascending numbers and the animals themselves, but to the precariousness of their survival due to human activity. Stephen Walton pays homage to these creatures’ unique beauty with dazzling charcoal illustrations whose level of detail is almost unbelievable. It is easy to get lost in the magnificent mane of the lion, the beautiful feathers of the macaws, or the silvery fur of the Ethiopian wolves. Together, Cotton and Walton highlight the irreplaceability of some of Earth’s most extraordinary beings. Ages 4 and up
