A beautifully illustrated picture book, Fish On A Walk has no text other than two thematic words at the bottom of each spread. This unusual format suggests ideas that are central to each illustration without telling the story, thereby encouraging children to imagine and invent their own.
A perfect circle time book, Fish On A Walk invites children to giggle together and share their elaborations. Packed with many small details, this book is perfectly suited to young picture book explorers who tend to zero in on just that!
