I found The Fourteenth Goldfish to be a very engaging book filled with likeable characters. I particularly loved the science connections. Just as the main character, Ellie, has a fascination with all things scientific, you too will want to learn more about all the scientists mentioned in the book. The story is filled with humor, as well as thought provoking questions about the power of science.
I look forward to the beginning of Global Read Aloud when students will be sharing their thoughts about this charming book.
With a lighthearted touch and plenty of humor, Jennifer Holm celebrates the wonder of science and explores fascinating questions about life and death, family and friendship, immortality . . . and possibility?" Amazon Review
