This is an amusing reference book that I found at a library book sale years ago and still enjoy flipping through it now and then! A good companion book to this if you'd like to introduce the concept of animal group names to kids is A Storytelling of Ravens by Kyle Lukoff, which uses a much smaller selection of animals in story format to teach group names.

When it comes to groups of animals OR members of certain jobs, you can't just say "a bunch of..."! Of course there are 'schools of fish' and 'prides of lions' but there are many more such terms including the incomparable "exaltation of larks." Addictive reading once you get started -- even for a "browse of readers"!
