Text and photographs introduce fish as pets, their features and characteristics, and information on the basic care of fish.
Children's LiteratureA fish can be a wonderful pet and this selection in the "All About Pets" series uses simple declarative sentences to describe the major characteristics of fishthey live in water, they have fins and a tail. Like all living things they need food and clean water. Fish also need a tank that allows them room to swim. The "Words to Know" section contains more information than the book. Full-color pictures appear on the left-hand page and the single sentence text on the right. There is also a list of other books and Internet sites for more information as well as an index/word list. Since the back matter is written at a much higher reading and comprehension level than the text, adult assistance will probably be required to effectively access or use these resources. 2001, Pebble Books, $13.25. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
