Is a jellyfish a fish? How long do fish live? What is estivation? Expand your knowledge of these fascinating vertebrates in this amazing book!
Children's Literature - Jodell SadlerThe Life Cycles of Fish is a 48-page informational guide on fish, sharks, and more cold-blooded varieties with great photos, facts, charts, and diagrams. Any reader who prefers nonfiction will enjoy this title for it investigates fish from "what is a fish?" to "how do its gills work?" and talks about fish of every kind: cold-blooded, jawless and jawed, bony, born live. It also covers where fish live: cold water, warm, or in a shallow- or deep-water swarm. If kids want to learn about pupfish, lungfish, parrotfish, porcupine fish, or even stonefish, etc. and discover which one releases poison, which fights or flees, or which gulps water to make spines sick out, then this is the book to read. This book also responds to a series of questions: Where do fish live? How do they spend their time? What do they eat and which ones make great meals for us? Other interesting facts include fish food webs, releasing poisons, smallest and deepest dwelling, and which fish are powerful enough to kill. Also included are web site links, glossary, and additional book suggestions. Reviewer: Jodell Sadler
