One Gorilla: A Counting Book by Anthony Browne
Publisher: Walker Books
In this elegant 1–10 counting board book, Anthony Browne out-does himself with a vivid presentation of primates from gorillas to gibbons, macaques to mandrills, ring-tailed lemurs to spider monkeys. With his striking palette, exquisite attention to detail and quirky flair for facial expressions, the former children's laureate slyly extends the basic number concept
into a look at similarities and differences – portraying an extended family we can all count ourselves part of, and a home planet that we should all try to protect.
