Lull your little one to sleep while counting the animals also nestling in for the night. Count the stars coming out, fox cubs snuggling, puppies piling and chicks cuddling as baby rocks gently to sleep in this gorgeously illustrated board book from bestselling author Eric Walters and award-winning illustrator Josée Bisaillon.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This counting book actually has a little bit of a story to it. The beautiful illustrations show a variety of baby animals tucking themselves in for the night, whether it's in a nest or a den or even in a tree. I was pleasantly surprised by the pictures; they're so lovely to look at, with a relaxing vibe and plenty of details to look at. Kids can count the various creatures as they snuggle into their beds; there's even a baby human in their own bed, complete with a mobile overhead featuring some of the creatures that were counted in the book.

Some counting books are stronger than others. I think this one is near the top of the pack.

Quotable moment:

Premise: 4/5
Meter: n/a
Writing: 4/5
Illustrations: 4/5
Originality: 3/5

Enjoyment: 5/5

Overall: 4.17 out of 5
