Overview

A drove of pigs, a romp of otters, an ostentation of peacocks, and a tower of giraffes. . . . This clever book introduces young readers to some of the words we use to refer to animals in a group. The ink, watercolor, and fabric collage art is brightly colored and uniquely sets this fun book apart from the crowd. Each page presents information about an animal and its group behavior, such as how geese fly in a V-shape and honk to encourage the leaders, and that sometimes tens of thousand of flamingos meet up in one location.

Young readers will have a great time and create a wellspring of new vocabulary words.

Read an Excerpt

A Gaggle of Geese

When geese are together on the ground, they are called a gaggle. When they fly, often in a V shape, the group is known as a skein. The bold geese at the back honk to encourage those in front to move quickly. Honk! Honk!
