When Fur and Feather Get Together {Book Review}

When Fur and Feather Get Together
by David R. Margrave (Author), Kim Wyly (Illustrator)

When Fur and Feather Get Together is a delightful book for children. It’s written in a rhyming way that makes it a catchy choice for storytime. The words naturally flow from start to finish.

This book is about different types of animals and what they are called. It begins with a father telling his son a poem.  Did you know that a group of owls is called a parliament and that a gathering of geese is called a gaggle? There are all sorts of animals from many different places in the world included but not all have mentioned group names.
