A Tower of Giraffes written and illustrated by Anna Wright (2015)
This beautiful picture book gives brief descriptions of different animal groups.The artwork is amazing. You need to open this book just to enjoy the yarn sheep, the magenta flamingos, and the feathered owls. Some of the groups are familiar to most people, but there are some new and interesting groups featured in the pages of this lovely book. Some of my favorites are a mischief of mice, a prickle of hedgehogs, and an ostentation of peacocks… perfect, right? I bet you can guess what a group of giraffes is called! Learn more about these and many others here.
You’ll want to take your time pouring over the illustrations and information on each page of this book. A trip to the zoo, nature reserve, or even more time on a televised animal show is certainly in order when you finish reading this book. Then of course, you’ll want to go back and enjoy the pages of the book one more time.
