In simple yet informative language, A PLACE FOR FISH introduces young readers to ways human action or inaction can affect fish populations and opens kids minds to a wide range of environmental issues. Describing various examples from Florida s spotted trunkfish to the Atlantic salmon the text provides an intriguing look at fish, at the ecosystems that support their survival, and at the efforts of some people to save them.
At the end of the book, the author offers readers a list of things they can do to help protect these special creatures in their own communities.
Artist Higgins Bond s glorious full-color illustrations vividly and accurately depict the fish and their surroundings.
I love the illustrations and the details of the fish in their environment. I like that it takes two approaches to teaching. One is fun facts about different types of fish, like the hammerhead shark is over ten million years old. Second, the author explains how we can help them survive in their environment, like using a certain metal for fish hooks.
This book is a great educational tool for any child with a curious mind who likes marine life. This book can help children become more aware of their actions and switch their minds to things they can do to help.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to children who love fish, learning, and protecting the environment.
