Fabulous Fishesby Susan StockdaleWith a simple, factual rhyming text and brightly colored, richly textured illustrations, author-illustrator Susan Stockdale introduces young readersin both pre-K and elementary grades to different kinds of fish and the underwater world they call home. From the spiky lionfish and the brightly colored clownfish to lanternfishes and hatchetfishes that flash lights so they can find each other in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean, children will be fascinated by the breadth of sea life depicted. .In only a few large words per page, the book illustrates diversity and adaptations. Bold, colorful, fabulous fish are depicted in their natural habitats. To prepare teachers for the inevitable, excited questions that will follow a group reading, an afterward with thumbprint photos supplies additional information about each organism featured including which body of water they can be located. There is also a list of great books for further investigation. This is a fantastic book to read before a field trip to an aquarium or to learn hand motions to pair with the catchy-rhyming words in the book. Students can learn the parts of a fish's body, how gills work, or how scientists classify fish. This book can also be used to talk about fish habitats and the way pollution may affect them.Awards for this book include: * Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children, National Science Teachers Association, 2009 * Science Books & Films Best Book for Children, 2008 * 2009 Baker's Dozen: The 13 Best Books for Family Literacy, Pennsylvania Center for the Book * ReadBoston's Best Read Aloud Book Award finalist, 2009 * Cybils Award, the children's and young adult bloggers' literary award finalist, 2008 * Curators' Choice, Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History, 2008 * National Association for the Education of Young Children Recommends, 2008 * 28th Society of Illustrators "Original Art 2008 Exhibition" and the "Original Art 2008-2009 Traveling Exhibition" selection
