Ideal for enriching a child's imagination and vocabulary, this compilation of aquatic collective nouns is the perfect gift or learning tool for young onesA school of whales and a pod of dolphins: these are two of the aquatic group names you may already know. But have you heard of a congregation of crocodiles, or a battery of barracudas? How about a fever of stingrays or a raft of sea otters? Within the pages of this book are a boldly illustrated collection of less popular and sometimes more quirky ones—from a knot of frogs to a run of salmon, and beyond.


"Readers will enjoy puzzling out how the pictures and collective nouns experiment with meaning in both literal and figurative senses." — Publishers Weekly
