KIRKUS REVIEW

 A book of collective nouns paired with full-color photographs from Oxford Scientific Films and brief lines of text for 13 animals. Familiar animals dominate the collection, among them, dolphins, kangaroos, lions, walruses, camels. Each appears on a spread of one large and two smaller photographs (clear enough for group viewing), and a sentence describing the animal and its group: ``One fox sniffing, two foxes digging--a skulk of foxes hunting in the night.'' The brief sentences are filled with lively action words; these creatures glide, hop, kiss, yawn, box, sunbathe, somersault, swarm, float, and fly. From a troop of kangaroos to a pod of walruses, the book provides useful information in a compelling presentation. Back matter includes scientific names and a paragraph of interesting facts about each animal. (Picture book/nonfiction. 3-8)
