Here is a list of the things I love.
Two butterflies among my flowers—and one gorilla.
Three budgerigars in my house—and one gorilla.
One very playful gorilla keeps popping up in gardens, forests, jungles, and even people’s houses as he takes the reader on a wild counting adventure. He hides—as much as a gorilla can!—along with all the other creatures as they dart, leap, and peer from the most surprising places, waiting to be counted. A chart at the end of the book provides a key to all the animals and their corresponding numbers.
Soft, precise illustrations characterize this colorful counting book.
