Fish Tale with a nice hook

Joey and the Net is a beautifully illustrated story about a Mama fish and her baby tilapia. Like most big broods, or in this case schools, she has one offspring who swims against the current. This is both frustrating and scary for the mama. It all resolves itself in a Disneyesque type ending with Joey showing how his independent spirit saves the day. Great conversation starter on independent thought, when it is appropriate and when it can be dangerous. I found the details about the fish Tilapia very interesting in the front of the book.

Happy Reading!
