From the Publisher:
“This is a bat! It’s dressed as a witch. Can you guess why? A group of bats is called . . . A cauldron of bats! Introduce the idea of collective nouns to young children with this fun lift-the-flap book. Open the flap to reveal a funny scene that illustrates weird and wonderful collective nouns for very cute animals.” (source)
- Vibrant colors
- Sturdy build
- Clever and cute concept
A Cauldron of Bats is so much fun. The spooky cute cover immediately caught my eye. But don’t be fooled–it isn’t a Halloween book. All of the illustrations are bright and vibrant and cover bats in witches hats, flies in business suits, and hornets in cycling attire.
It is a very fun and clever way to introduce young children to collective nouns. And I even learned a thing or two. Do you know what a group of jackdaws are called? You’ll have to read to find out.
Another thing that impressed me was how sturdy the book felt, especially since it is a lift-the-flap style book. Each page and flap is nice think and will hold up under many readings.
If you are looking for a fun, vibrant and informative book for young children, definitely check this one out!
