A Parliament of Owls

We rated this book:


One of the things children’s books should do is teach children about grammar and language, so it is easy to understand prose and colorful pictures. That is the point of this work, where our unnamed protagonist has called together different groups of land and sea animals for a group photo. What happens is that each set of animals comes to the photoshoot on its own, but the child reading the book learns the proper way to spell and pronounce the plural of animal groupings, such as geese, owls, and other animals. The art is colorful and is designed to attract and retain the attention of the young child reading the book. The book is designed to be read by an adult to a child or by a child learning how to read out loud; this is a perfect crossover book for that as outside of a few of the plural words the rest of the words tend to gravitate toward simpler words perfect for young readers just starting out. At the end is a collage of individual shots of the different animals together and a way for young readers to learn their grammar.
