“Tadpoles, Cams, and Minnows- WOW” This is the world of Beth and Paul, who live near a lake. They enjoy many outdoor adventures and appreciate the creatures who live in and around their lake. But when they find a carp, they are not impressed, as the fish is quite ugly. Their father explains that God made all creatures and they are precious in His sight. The children learn a wonderful lesson of helping others and working together.
This is a 24 page picture book for preschool- young elementary age children. The pictures are cartoon like with muted colors. While one of the main characters is a female, this book will appeal to boys who like to fish.
