Anna-Rose Kirchner –
Have you ever wondered what a group of flamingos are called? hippopotamuses? Possums? ‘Group Hug!’ introduces you to all your animal collective noun needs!
Follow Wilbur, an inquisitive young boy, as he safaris through the zoo learning about the different creatures that live there. Along the way, you will be introduced to the fun and sometimes wacky collective nouns these animal groups use. For example, did you know that a group of geese are called a gaggle? But only when they’re on land!
Come and explore with Wilbur and see just how rich and diverse nature (and grammar) truly is.
In ‘Group Hug!’ Andy Fackrell has cleverly produced a book which is not only colourful, fun and witty, but which also lends itself as an educational tool for young readers. If you know someone who struggles with grammar and collective nouns, look no further! ‘Group Hug!’ is here and ready to inspire and educate today’s young minds. There is even an end-page activity to keep those brain-cogs turning and your children learning.
