BOOK REVIEW: Big Al
This book is not new, but it is a timeless tale and is perfect for anyone visiting an aquarium.
Through the story of a big, ugly, and especially kind fish, it gently explains the trouble with judging someone by their looks. Big Al, the fish, is a super friendly, but he is also big and scary in appearance. None of the other fish in the sea will get close enough to get to know him. Al is a sad and lonely fish. One day something happens and Big Al selflessly steps up to help the other fish. A simple, relate-able story beautifully illustrated with soft, vibrant colors. A combination of materials are used to depict the bright, eye-catching fish that contrast Al's dark scales. Plunge into the deep blue sea and explore this universal message about character and friendship.
