Beautiful Rhyming Children’s Book Teaches About Groups of Animals

When Fur and Feather Get Together (Hardcover)

Did you know that a sighting of a group of unicorns is so rare that it is called a blessing? When Fur and Feather Get Together is a fun and educational rhyming story about a father and child enjoying their lazy day together.

Classics like Carle’s Brown Bear Brown Bear and Martin’s Chicka Chicka Boom Boom never make it to the bookshelf—instead they remain on the nightstand table or in the rocking chair within arm’s reach. An exciting addition to the must-have collection of children’s favorites is the newly released When Fur and Feather Get Together by David Margrave (Clovercroft Publishing, April 2018).

Complete with rhyming lessons about what groups of animals are called when they get together, children will love learning things like: a group of rhinos is a crash, as assembly of owls is a parliament, and unicorns together are a blessing. At the end of the book, Margrave closes with something that applies to all of the groups, which is the beauty and meaning of family.

Accompanied by whimsical, heartwarming illustrations by Kim Wyly, When Fur and Feather Get Together gives the reader the opportunity to teach their child:

● Animals have families too, and have fun spending time and playing with them

● Learning doesn’t have to be serious—it can be silly too!

● Although people and animals may be different from each other, they also have many things in common

● Why it’s so important to build memories through spending time with family, and learning from one another

This is a book that can be enjoyed equally by families as well as in a teaching environment. Wyly’s endearing and relatable illustrations of animals and nature are a perfect complement to the story. Frolicking across the pages of this rhyming picture book are beautifully illustrated foxes, owls, bears, sheep, raccoons, geese, fish, lions, whales, rhinos, monkeys and even unicorns.
