Item description for About Fish: A Guide for Children (About...) by Cathryn P. Sill & John Sill...

Introduces various species of fish, describing their food needs, body structures, protective mechanisms, habitats, and reproduction.

Publishers Description
Elementary school teacher and author Cathryn Sill and her husband, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill, team up again to offer young readers another first glimpse into our natural world in the latest book in the acclaimed About... series.

In simple, easy-to-understand language children learn the basic characteristics -- what fish are; how they swim, breathe, and reproduce; and how they protect themselves from predators. The beautifully detailed, full-color illustrations reflect the diversity of the fish population -- from an Arctic char to a Porcupine Fish -- and present each in its natural underwater habitat. An afterword, which provides further details on the fish portrayed, will inspire young readers to learn more.

Reviews - What do customers think about About Fish: A Guide for Children (About...)?

A must for young naturalists  Aug 16, 2009
I recently bought this book for my 25-month old son who loves animals and "About Birds: A Guide For Children". Though this book is too sophisticated for him at present ("too big", he says) I know he will love it in the future. Like "About Birds" the illustrations are excellent and the text expressed fairly sophisticated facets of fish in a simple and accessible way (how they eat, breathe, travel, etc). I definitely recommend this book (and series) to anyone with a child that loves nature and animals - it's unique and special series.
