Tiger Tales, 2016.
Goodness, this is one of my new favorite board books. The text of this book is sweet and helps kids learn to count to 10, but it's the illustrations that are fabulous. I don't know that I've seen cuter African animals. They are so cute!
This is a "character counts" book because Abigail the giraffe is so sweet to her friends that don't know how to count well. She patiently teaches them how to count and shows them that even when the sun has set, they can still count the stars.
