Fish to Feed (A) - Cover
Fish to Feed (A)
Ellen Mayer, Starbright Books 2015
One of the excellent "Small Talk Series" of toddler books, this one tells a "story about an African American Dad and his toddler going to the store to buy a goldfish." The toddler communicates by pointing and using his limited vocabulary ("Fish, fish! ... "Fish? ... Look! Fish"). Dad responds by repeating the toddler's words and extending them into sentences. The illustrations are easily "read" by little ones and are filled with the excitement of the events and the warmth between the Dad and the child.

Ages: Infant/Toddler (0-2)
Languages: English
Book Types: Story Book
Identity Groups: African American
Strands: Knowledge of Self & Connection to Others, Care & Love of Nature
