In A Fish Name Fred by Tamara Neal, when a family moves into their new home, they discover a fishbowl filled with brown, murky water, which has been left behind by the previous owners. To their surprise, when the father empties the water, a little fish cries out for help. The whole family decides to keep the scared little fish. They give him a clean home and name him Fred. Little Fred is very grateful and learns that it is okay to be unique. An enchanting story that will encourage children to be tolerant of others, but will also teach them the effects of judging and isolating others because they are different. This book will entertain every young reader while also teaching them excellent values.
A Fish Name Fred by Tamara Neal is a delightfully well-written story that is a perfect bedtime read for small children. It has a great message behind the story, which is that you should not be cruel to people or creatures that are different. The illustrations are perfect for the story and can be used by parents to strengthen their child's observational skills. A poignant story that children can read along and relate to because of the clever use of language. I love the character of Fred; he is an underdog (or fish!) that finally triumphs. The book will teach children to show kindness and tolerance toward people who are different to themselves. A perfect addition to any child's bookcase and is especially recommended for schools.
