Counting Creatures | Paperback
A Telegraph Best Children's Book of 2020
A rich and beautiful counting book full of gorgeous baby animals, with shaped pages, flaps and fold-outs from the UK's favourite author Julia Donaldson and award-winning illustrator Sharon King-Chai.
From a leopard with her cubs, to a frog and its tadpoles, young readers will delight in counting each creature's babies and seeing where they live. With rhyming text and a surprise search-and-find game, this is a read-aloud delight and an absolute must for the family bookshelf. A truly beautiful gift, and the perfect companion book to Animalphabet.
"[Counting Creatures is] engaging, rewarding, and utterly delightful." - Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
