A Zeal of Zebras: an alphabet of collective nouns

A Zeal of Zebras: an alphabet of collective nouns
By Woop Studios
Chronicle Books, 2011. Unpaged. Juvenile nonfiction.

In this beautiful, graphic alphabet book, groups of animals are named by their herd terms, known as collective nouns--such as a galaxy of starfish--and fascinating facts are listed about each type of animal. The computer-rendered illustrations are gorgeous with a screen print feel and make a collective gallery of high-quality art. The information is concise and incredibly interesting and children who enjoy facts are sure to eat this book up!
