The Lovereading4Kids comment
Anthony Browne uses the format of a counting book to focus attention on primates, animals that fascinate him. The book presents what are really a series of portraits so that on each page a primate, or group of primates, gaze out at the reader, demanding that you really look at them, appreciate their beauty, their dignity and their similarity to us. The book finishes with another portrait, this time of the artist – and then with a page depicting group of humans, all ages, all races: all primates, all our family. Far more than just a counting book, this is a work of art.
One Gorilla: A Counting Book by Anthony Browne
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.
