This is an awesome children's book that teaches about the environment and about life in the pond. It is very well written and contains extensive vocabulary: It mentions different animals such as ospreys, minks and catfish. The illustrations are also beautiful, the color palette is very inviting.
Things that caught my eye:
* Would recommend for ages 3-8
* Gorgeous illustrations
* The story line promotes care for nature and the environment
* Diversity: The protagonist and his mom are black
* Small encyclopedia in the back containing information on the animals mentioned in the book
