A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings: 11/17/19
A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings by Matt Sewell is a collection of illustrations with descriptions of the collective noun for the animal on the page.
Sewell's illustrations are lovely. They are simplified made of basic shapes and solid areas of colors. But they are still recognizably the animals that the text talks about.
But it's a short book and it's primarily focused on commonwealth animals. What I'd really like to see is Sewell to make this the first in a series. Later books could be more regionally focused: a Pacific Northwest, an American Prairies, Canada, China, Japan, etc.
