Herd of Cows! Flock of Sheep!
by Rick Walton and Julie Olsen

When an exhausted Farmer Bob sleeps through torrential raining and flooding on his farm, it takes the cooperation of groups of animals to save the farmer and his farm. This storyline allows for a natural introduction to a series of animal-related collective nouns (ie: herds, flocks, swarms, gaggles...)

School Library Journal ended its review with "Walton has once again had fun with language-this time with 'group' vocabulary." Of the collective nouns books we've listed, this one is definitely the most 'fun.' However, it is limited to collective nouns about animals, so we suggest you pair it with Ruth Heller's A Cache of Jewels.
