Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Book Review: Something Fishy by Barry Louis Polisar


This is a book of wacky poems in the style of Shel Silverstein.  It is filled with clever and energetic illustrations.  The author has chosen a variety of ocean animals to share with children.  He shares a fact or two about each animal in poetic fashion.

You could read the book cover to cover to a child (the vocabulary is advanced for most young readers), or read one creature’s poem to introduce an animal study by using additional resources.  There is a glossary of words at the end.

I would recommend this book to adults reading to children ages 7-9, or for children reading independently at 10 or older.

My 11-year old son says, “I like the mix of Dr. Seuss and Ranger Rick.  It has great rhymes that also teach a lot about sea creatures.  It’s a funny book with funny pictures.  Good word play.”

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
