Now first of all, I’m clearly not a child, nor do I have children, so you may question my authority to review a children’s book. But I can appreciate lovely literature, so here are my thoughts on Tyler the Fish Saves Lake Erie by Meaghan Fisher.
Tyler is a young bass who lives in Lake Erie and loves playing and exploring with his friends. One day, a game of Fish Tag takes him and his friend Jimmy into some unfamiliar waters. They’re a long way from home, and even worse, the water is brown! When Tyler and Jimmy find out what’s wrong with the water, they need to come up with a plan to save it… before the lake where they live is poisoned!
Tyler the Fish is a charming story of a fish who must save Lake Erie, which is being polluted. The book is beautifully illustrated, designed to capture the attention and imagination of the reader.
It contains encouraging messages for readers – both children and adults – to take away, including the idea that everyone can make a difference, no matter how small, if they try. I love reading books that carry strong messages, teaching morals and encouraging you to be the best you can be, and I believe many children will love this story too.
All of Fisher’s books are incredibly well-thought-out, beautifully crafted, and full of valuable lessons. Tyler the Fish Saves Lake Eriecarries many important themes, designed to teach children lessons they will remember throughout their lives.
