“Tidings of magpies, Ducks in a brace, Elks in a gang, in a galloping race.”
This joy-filled romp through creation captures your child’s imagination with the silly-sounding (but true) names of animal groups. Rhythmic verse celebrates the wonder of God’s imagination displayed in his creatures–from a clutter of cats and a mischief of rats to an army of frogs and a drift of fat hogs.
Along with all the wild, wacky, and winsome animals, this rollicking adventure leads children to an unexpected encounter with a most unusual grouping, one that reveals God’s greatest artistry and creativity: a blessing of kids.
