    Bath Book (B.E.S., Feb. 1, 2013)
    Bath time is play time for baby with this brightly illustrated floating vinyl book. The book is named for the Fish that appears on the front and back covers, but when toddlers open this book they'll see six more colorful creatures on inside pages--every little water-dwelling animal labeled with its name. Swimming along with Fish are an eel, a lobster, and four more bright pictures. And when Baby picks up this book and give it a squeeze, he'll hear a cheerful squeak. This is one of four titles that B.E.S. offers in the Shake & Play Bath Book series: Duck, Fish, Turtle, and Whale. Each book comes in a clear vinyl package.

    L.S. Matthews, J. Lamia, Listening Library

    Audiobook (Listening Library, July 21, 2004)
    My story starts the day that my parents told me we must leave our adopted home forever. Because of the soldiers and the drought, we barely had enough to eat and we could no longer stay to help the people in our village. Right before we were leaving I saw a fish in a small brown puddle, and I knew I had to take it with me. The journey would be hard, to cross the mountains get to the safety of the border and the people there who could help us. Yet when I put the fish in the pot I never realized what we would have to face. It never occurred to me to leave Fish behind. A subtle and sophisticated exploration of life, the strength of humanity, and survival in an unforgiving world, Fish is a story that will teach those who doubt that, when hope is almost extinguished, miracles can happen.
