Abigail by Catherine Rayner


Looking for a unique counting book? Abigail by author/illustrator Catherine Rayner might just fit the bill.

Abigail loves to count. But her friends (Ladybug, Zebra, and Cheetah) never seem to stand still long enough for her to finish. Finally, she finds something to count, but then she learns her friends aren’t so good at counting. What can she do?

How many counting books can you own? My suggestion is you make room for one more, because Abigail is worth it. She’s trying to count spots and stripes, but her friends keep moving on her. Then there are more issues and it takes some ingenuity before all three friends get together for some counting fun.

The design features giraffe spots on the inside front and back covers, plus there is a special flip up page with a neat surprise inside. Rayner uses warm, soft colors that appeal to the eye and create a calming effect. This would make a nice bedtime book or naptime book.
