A Tower of Giraffes: Animals in Groups
Did you know penguins are social animals that love being together in a group? This group is called a parcel. Flamingos are also quite social and live in large groups called flamboyances or stands. Sheep on the other hand are shy animals and that is why they stick together in a group, or a flock.
Young readers will meet groups of animals and learn the collective noun by which each group is identified. Readers will learn about the appearances of the animals and how they behave and interact with one another.
Anna Wright’s unique art uses ink, water, and fabric collage to create a textured and interesting portrayal of the groups of animals.
