Catch That Goat! by Polly Alakija: The boys really like this one. It's a counting book hidden inside a short tale of a mischievous goat who makes off with various items from a Nigerian market. Ayoka is the little girl who is supposed to be goat-sitting for her mother, but spends all of her time asking her neighbors at the market if they've seen her goat. The boys love counting the items left from the goat's looting and looking for traces of the goat -- kicking hooves, e.g. A very comical book.
