Dive into an underwater world with amazing fish and their habitats on every page!
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.
With a simple, rhyming text and richly textured illustrations, author-illustrator Susan Stockdale introduces young readers to different kinds of fish and the underwater world they call home. An afterword offers fascinating facts and a closer look at each fish.
"Stockdale uses simple rhymes and clear, colorful acrylic artwork to introduce the fascinating underwater world of fishes." "An exciting way to prepare kids for a visit to the aquarium." "Every turn of the page reveals vivid paintings of exotic as well as common underwater creatures to delight all ages. If the paintings are the feast, Stockdale's words are the dessert. And she selects them carefully." "Youngsters will tap their toes to the rhythm as they are simultaneously presented with a great variety of fish and tickled by the unexpected aspects and behavioral characteristics of each type...Bold, graphic illustrations rendered in colorful acrylic portray each fish realistically...An excellent teaching tool and an appealing introduction to the wide world of fish."
