" I had a principal who had a poster hanging on his office wall with a list of the names of animal groups. I loved it and always wanted one just like it. This is even better! A book, beautifully illustrated with interesting textures and materials, about animal groups and their behaviors. Wonderful! I can see students going crazy over researching more collective nouns. Great mentor text for the writing and reading workshop. Can't wait to share it with my class. " said.

" A very interesting book that went above and beyond just listing the collective nouns for animals, but also included brief blurbs about behavior. I couldn't decide how I felt about the illustrations. On the one hand, they were certainly eye-catching and well-executed. On the other, some of the wallpaper and fabric choices were a little too distracting, and sometimes almost eerie.Still, I recommend the book. " said.

"A Tower of Giraffes: Animals in Groups is a stunningly beautiful children's book about animals who live in groups. With each page turn is a new discover of fantastic and unique artwork of animals and information about the groups they live in. I adore this book my son was enthralled with it. This book has instantly gone on my favorites list for children's books.

A Tower of Giraffes is very educational, even I learned quite a bit of really cool information. I recommend this book for any art or animal lover as well as anyone with children. This book is a great addition to any home!

My family received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

" Beautiful illustrations of the many different animal groups; great examples for learning about collective nouns. " said.

" A book of collective nouns for animals, notable for its unique illustrations: "Illustrations done in ink and watercolor, then collaged with fabric and feathers." " said.

" This picture book gives brief basic information about some animals (geese, koalas, squirrels, pigs, sheep, mice, hedgehogs) and how they live together in groups. Illustrations by the author are line drawings. Some are embellished with collage (fabric, uphholstery, wallpaper). The sheep illustration is especially clever as it includes several knit patterns " said.

" A group of peacocks is called an ostentation, which I think is quite appropriate. Readers will learn this group and 15 others in this imaginatively illustrated book. The author/illustrator uses items like pieces of real wool sweaters to help illustrate sheep and real feathers for the bird groups.Children will enjoy pointing out the different animals and the items used to illustrate them. Teachers/parents will love a simple book covering 16 of the most common animal groups. " said.

"Delightful! I enjoy this author/illustrator's style and writing, and this is a fine example. There are plenty of picture books out there about collective nouns and animals for children. This book is very interesting and engaging, providing a little paragraph for each animal/grouping on a double-page spread. The wide range of materials used in creating the images also tie in quite well with each animal group. The limited length (standard 32-page picture book) is another selling point, as sometimes these sorts of books can go on for too long, inundating the reader with what almost adds up to a list of collective nouns. Overall, a very fine read and something I recommend heartily." said.
