Book of the Week: Book Review: Fish by Brendan Kearney


 Book Review: Fish by Brendan Kearney Published by DK 

Published  on 3 September, £6.99 

A gorgeously illustrated inspirational picture book celebrating the environment and highlighting ways to help clean up the ocean. 

Finn and his dog Skip go out to sea to catch a fish for their supper. But when all they catch is rubbish they realise the sealife is suffering. How can they help? They meet children cleaning the beach and learn how to help keep our oceans clean. 

A wonderful inspirational picture book which has the children educating the adult how to help reduce plastic and small steps can make a big difference. It hopefully will inspire younger generations to be more aware of the harm plastic is causing to the sea life and ways they can help and be more mindful. 

A lovely book to share with the family and in the class room. 

The theatrical illustrations tell their own story with a plethora of detail little ones will delight in exploring. A great deal of thought, detail and empathy has gone into this gently educational picture book.  Stunning. 

Book Description- 

Fish follows Finn the fisherman and his dog, Skip, as they try to catch a fish for their supper. Although no matter how hard they try, all they seem to catch is rubbish - but they soon find a way to put all that rubbish to good use. 
This is an ideal introduction to the environmental concerns facing our oceans that delivers an uplifting message about protecting the world around us. Brendan dreamt up the story whilst walking his own dog along the beach near Dartmoor and seeing all the litter piling up, so he thought Finn and Skip might encourage children to think about how they can help.
