There Is a Tribe of Kids

Publisher: Two Hoots

A little boy spends a day finding different groups of things: a pod of whales, an unkindness of ravens, a formation of rocks. However, even the stars have a family, and the boy might be feeling just a tiny bit lonely. Where are the other kids?

Fortunately, after a night of dreams by the ocean of blue, he finds his place in the world.

This engaging and attractive exploration of collective nouns weaves a lovely story about a boy who wants to belong. It follows his journey through a truly beautiful series of illustrations, reminiscent of Where the Wild Things Are.

Parents will probably find they learn a few terms they didn't know before, as they read along with their child. The sections without any words at all also provide a great opportunity to talk about the boy's adventures and expressions.
