A Charm of Goldfinches

A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings: Quirky Collective Nouns of the Animal Kingdom by Matt Sewell (Author / Illustrator)

Booktalk: Most groups of wildlife can be described as a flock, herd, or shoal–but where is the fun in ending there? The book is divided into four sections. Discover the secret behind a “sleuth of bears” on the Land pages, keep your eyes open for a “watch of nightingales” on the Air pages, and learn something new about a “school of whales” in the Water pages. Then check off the animals you’ve see in real life on the Spotting and Jotting pages.
