Grandmother Fish by Jonathan Tweet- ESSENTIAL

Tweet, Jonathan. Grandmother Fish, PICTURE BOOK. Feiwel and Friends, 2015. $17.99. 

Starting with Grandmother Fish, the reader sees the evolution of various animals from reptiles to mammals, to apes, to humans. Each animal has a very short description of how they can move and function. At the end of the book there is an evolutionary family tree. 

This is a really well done book. The illustrations are really bright, colorful and detailed and help add substance to the book. It encourages the reader to compare themselves to the various animals to demonstrate if they can breathe, cuddle, crawl, grab, etc. The graphic maps help to show the correlation between the different animals and how they evolved.
