I received the following book for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
If there’s one thing we’re loving lately around here, it’s books. Books at bedtime, books in the morning, books in the car. Adeline is totally in the book phase right now, and I don’t hate it. She loves picking out her books all on her own, and God help us if we try to pick it out for her! She’s Miss Independent currently and wants to help hold the book, and turn the pages, and just this week we’ve caught her “reading” out loud to herself. Any other toddler moms out there I’m sure can relate. And now that she’s loving life in her big girl bed, she’s even more pumped to crawl into bed with a good book.
Recently I was offered the chance to review a new children’s book, When Fur and Feather Get Together by David Margrave, and I was more than happy to give it a read with Adeline. She’s pretty picky about her books, and very opinionated, and will tell you in a heartbeat if she “no like dat one.” I figured since When Fur and Feather Get Together was about animals, it would most likely go over well!
So in brief summary, the book teaches what different groups of animals are called when they’re found in large groups. For example, a group of lions is called a pride, and a group of geese is called a gander. It’s told from a father’s perspective, which gives it a touch of sweetness. The illustrations are cute and unique, and the book itself is a pretty quick read so it’s easy to get through without losing their attention. Adeline will only pay attention to a book in its entirety if it’s something SHE picked out or if it’s about something she loves, i.e. ANIMALS! Needless to say, Adeline approves, Adam and I approve, and I would definitely recommend it to any other animal loving toddlers who are in need of a fun new book. Plus, it’s published by a local company back home, and I’m all for supporting local business!
You can grab When Fur and Feather Get Together on Amazon, and it retails for $11.08, with Prime.
