A Zeal of Zebras: An Alphabet of Collective Nouns

Have you seen a galaxy of starfish, or a caravan of camels? Peek into the pages of A Zeal of Zebras. Each page is dedicated to one letter of the alphabet and a collective noun (those whimsical words that name a group of things), along with fascinating animal facts. This must-have book is perfect for getting kids to fall in love with words (and animals, if they’re not already.) The classic typography and beautiful art make it a book to appreciate, no matter what your age. (Chronicle Books, $12.23)
