Our Review

“The Circus Fish” written by Marla Huehmer and illustrated by Natasha and London Huehmer is a beautiful picture book that will inspire your child to dream and envision themselves making their dreams come true.

Numerous studies have shown that kids who dream have a better sense of purpose, make better decisions, have more confidence and are happier.

In this bright and colorful picture book, we meet a little fish with a big dream. She wants to be the biggest and best Circus Fish the Ocean has ever seen.

This seems like an absurd idea to a lot of the other fish, and they let the Little Fish know. But this little fish is determined. She knows what she can do and she will not let anyone shake her confidence. She sets off on a journey to connect with friends who can help her make her dream come true.

There is so much to love about “The Circus Fish”. This is a book you and your kids will want to read again and again. The illustrations are fun, vibrant and positively captivating. The story is told in rhyme, so kids can easily follow along and join in.

Most of all we love the lessons that “The Circus Fish” teaches. It is important for our kids to dream. It is also important for them to know that there are going to be people and circumstances that may discourage them from chasing their dreams. Kids can learn from The Circus Fish to have confidence and to seek out the people in life that will be supportive and help them to be successful.

Just imagine the conversations you can have with your kids after reading “The Circus Fish”. Asking your kids what their dreams are and how you can help them make those dreams come can be the beginning of a life long conversation.
