I received a copy of “When Fur and Feather Get Together” ($11.99 value) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
In this story, a young boy sits with his dad on a top of a hill and they talk about animals from fur to feather and what they are called when they are together…a gathering of geese is called a gaggle; an assembly of owls is called a parliament and so on and so forth.
Cute and educational hardcover picture book all in one and also plants the seeds of knowing spending time with someone you love is priceless.
When Fur and Feather Get Together is geared for ages 3-7 (grades Preschool – 3). It can be purchased at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
