Did you know that a sighting of a group of unicorns is so rare that it is called a blessing? When Fur and Feather Get Together, it is a fun and educational rhyming story about a father and child enjoying their lazy day together. Incorporating the warm and whimsical animal paintings of illustrator Kim Wyly, the father teaches his child what different animal groups are called. Ultimately, it is a book encouraging quality time spent together while leading to further exploration of surprising words and their meanings. This is a book that can be enjoyed equally by families as well as in a teaching environment. Wyly's endearing and relatable illustrations of animals and nature are a perfect complement to the story. Frolicking across the pages of this rhyming picture book are beautifully illustrated foxes, owls, bears, sheep, raccoons, geese, fish, lions, whales, rhinos, monkeys and even unicorns.



This is such a cute book that’s not only offers a story but also teaches little ones what groups of animals are called. The beginning starts out with a dad and young child sitting on top of hill, spending quality time together. They talk about animals from fur to feather and what they are called when they are together. A group of fish are called a ‘school’, a group of sheep are called a ‘flock’ and so on, all the way to a group of unicorns being called a ‘blessing’. I will be honest, some I never honestly knew until this book.  

There is rhyming throughout the story that is easy enough for little ones to understand. I love how whimsical the illustrations are on each page. There is also humor throughout from a fish on laptop, owls wearing wigs, and so much more. My daughter whom is four loved this book, from the illustration to the names of the groups. It is truly a cute book to read to your little ones.
