PACKS:  Strength in Numbers by Hannah Salyer. New York: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2020. 40p.  ISBN 978-1328577887 hc. $17.99     Gr. K-2     NF 591.56

Besides being an integration of science and language, this book is a visual sensation.  Beginning with full page spreads of a wolf pack, a buffalo herd, a huddle of penguins, and a pod of dolphins, Salyer proceeds to highlight a single noteworthy fact about the remaining animals, while still informing readers of the collective noun for each group.  The bright multimedia illustrations continue to enrich the reader's visual experience throughout.  All 24 animals are diverse and originate from habitats around the world.
