In A Place For Fish, the award-winning children’s science book writer delves feet-first into the beautiful, deep-blue world of fish. In clear, simple language, she tells children how and why fish make our world a better place. She also outlines, step-by-step, the ways in which humans harm fish (sometimes without even knowing) by using chemicals, capturing and placing them in aquariums, building dams, polluting waters and so forth.
But never one to deliver bad news and end it there, Stewart also outlines ways in which people can help fish live and grow, like when they agree not to use chemicals in certain places, protect coral reefs, and find ways to use less water.
A Place For Fish is clear, concise, and written in short sentences that make it easy for children to understand. It is also quite lovely to behold, with brilliant illustrations (by artist Higgins Bond) that are so realistic, you’ll feel as if you can touch the fish with your fingers, or stick your big toe in the cool blue water.
Whether you teach a classroom full of budding scientists or you’re a parent hoping to instill a sense of love and caring in your little nature-lover, you’ll absolutely adore this book.
