reSchool-Grade 2-A simple, handsome book. Each spread consists of a brief sentence about fish life, anatomy, or behavior and a full-page, full-bleed watercolor painting. The text begins, "Fish live in water," and faces a picture of a brown trout. The specific form is identified in small italics at the bottom of the text page. More details and small black-and-white photos are included in an afterword. This pleasant title is a good companion to Robert Snedden's What Is a Fish? (Sierra Club, 1993) and Jim Arnosky's Crinkleroot's 25 Fish Every Child Should Know (S & S, 1993).

Ages 2-6. The Sills, whose previous books include About Amphibians (2001) and About Reptiles (1999), extend their useful series with an elementary introduction to fish. Beautifully illustrated with delicate, precise watercolor paintings, the text uses simple words to discuss topics such as how fish move, breathe, and protect themselves from predators. Each of the 15 spreads in this well-designed volume features a full-page illustration on one side facing a line or phrase of text on the other. Simple enough for a preschool teacher to read aloud in class, and easy enough for new readers to read for themselves, the presentation is extended by an informative afterword that includes a miniature black-and-white reproduction of each painting and a paragraph of text that identifies the species pictured, explains how it represents the concept mentioned, and further discusses the fish.
