    1. A great book with a great message. This book with the illustrations tries and explains what we must do to protect our bodies of water and the animals that live or depend of those bodies of water. Each page after the story continues to the right give a small description of the animal featured on the page. The inside cover and back inside cover also show you were you can find the fish mentioned in the book. The illustrations are good but I would have loved more use of bright colors.

    3.
