Here’s a colorful, factoid-filled offering about many kinds of fish…this will be welcome in classroom libraries. Nothing fishy about it: Enthusiasts can dive right in.
There’s a literary sweet spot for kids who delight in sea life, in amassing sharable details, and in immersive (pun fully intended) experiences, and Teckentrup hits that mark with a lushly illustrated picture book made for the oxymoronic serious browser…This is a great choice for kids heading off to lake, river, ocean, or aquarium adventures, or those just itching to trade their jeans for waders or a wetsuit.

If readers usually swoon over Teckentrup’s fabulous illustrations, this book won’t disappoint.
