School Library Journal - School Library JournalPreS-Gr 2-A simple, handsome book. Each spread consists of a brief sentence about fish life, anatomy, or behavior and a full-page, full-bleed watercolor painting. The text begins, "Fish live in water," and faces a picture of a brown trout. The specific form is identified in small italics at the bottom of the text page. More details and small black-and-white photos are included in an afterword. This pleasant title is a good companion to Robert Snedden's What Is a Fish? (Sierra Club, 1993) and Jim Arnosky's Crinkleroot's 25 Fish Every Child Should Know (S & S, 1993).-Jean Pollock, King Country Library System, Seattle, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

About Fish: A Guide for Children based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a nonfiction book about fish. I read this book to my younger brother who is three years old. I am five years old. We liked learning about how fish protect themselves and what they eat. I knew fish lived in warm water, but I didn’t know they could live in cold water too. And the fish who could camouflage was cool. Did you know some fish look like porcupines? My brother liked the Queen Angelfish, Rainbow Darter and Yellowfin Tuna. He loves colorful fish. At the back of the book, there are more facts about the different types of fish. I would recommend this book for preschoolers because it is easy to understand and the sentences were easy for me to read. The book gives you a lot of information about how fish live. My brother and I both liked the pictures too. My brother and I give this book four stars. Review by Cameron H., New Mexico Mensa
