This is a very cute book to teach some new vocabulary and terms to little ones. The text is rhyming and has an easy cadence to it. A little boy and his dad sit on a hill talking about animals and dad teaches him what various animals in groups are called. The illustrations are cute, done in coloured pencil, colourful and whimsical. There are wise owls sporting wigs, sheep parachuting from the clouds, fish with school supplies and more. My four year old grandson liked it and the three year olds wanted to read it again. After a few readings, they were telling me what some of the groups were called. A cute book for a family library with young children or for a daycare of pre-school setting. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via netgalley.

This heartwarming book is not only educational but gives kids (and adults) a wonderful sense of self-respect, self-worth and deep appreciation of belonging. A dad and his small son sit on top of a hill and talk together about a variety of animals. "And we talked about animals from fur to feather, and what they're called when they get together." They discuss the names of different animal groups, none ever the same. The book is written in rhyme something that kids always enjoy listening to or reading on their own. They discover that fish with their friends are called a school, lions in a group are a pride, a cluster of whales is a pod, rhinos are a crash, a gathering of geese is a gaggle, a group of sheep is a flock, The next one I did not know myself but it was so fun to find out. Did you know that an assembly of owls is called a parliament? Who knew? Lastly, unicorns spotted together are called a blessing. The ending of the book is the best of all because the little boy snuggles into his dad, crawls upon his lap and hugs him tight declaring: "I said, "Of all the groups we could be, my favourite one is our family." The happy whimsical illustrations enrich the text and the crescendo is when the boy informs us that the best gathering of all is his own beloved family unit. I love the book's message and highly recommend it.
