The Lovereading4Kids comment

The tiger star of this very beautiful counting book first appeared in Catherine Rayner’s picture book Augustus and his Smile. Not only does he look gorgeous in this new story – bold black stipes overlay vibrant orange and gold – but he’s hugely expressive too so that even the youngest child will understand why he’s sad at first, and how that changes as he makes new friends. The large format shows the illustrations off to full advantage and it’s a good size for sharing too. More than just a counting book, this is just the thing to introduce children to the power of art and illustration. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

This stunning board book forms part of celebrations marking the tenth anniversary of Catherine Rayner’s Augustus and his Smile in 2016 and follows the publication of a special gift edition.

Help your toddler learn to count from one to ten with this stylish counting book from Catherine Rayner. The simple text gently touches on themes of happiness, friendship and the natural world, making it the perfect companion to the classic picture book, Augustus and His Smile.

With sturdy board pages for little hands to turn, this beautiful tall-format board book encourages your child to practise their first numbers and develop their counting skills - and it's a wonderful gift for babies and toddlers too.

Reviews

Catherine Rayner has the marvellous gift for capturing the souls of animals in a few, rich washes of colour. - The Daily Telegraph.

About the Author

Catherine Rayner

Catherine Rayner was born in Harrogate and now lives in Edinburgh. She has a BA Hons in Visual Communication and Illustration from Leeds College of Art and Edinburgh College of Art. Much of her inspiration – and occasionally modelling! – for her illustration comes from her pets: her horse Shannon, guinea pig Marvin, dog Ellie, cat Emma and two goldfish, Bruce and Sheila. Catherine was shortlisted for the Booktrust Early Years Award Best New Illustrator in 2006, and she won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 2009.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Prize winning illustrator Catherine Rayner has created stunning picture books introducing delightful characters including Harris, a hare with exceptionally large feet and Ernest, a moose who is determined to get himself into a book – no mean feat when you are too big to fit in the pages. Gorgeous, warmly coloured large scale pictures lie at the heart of Catherine’s work.
