about

Why Don’t Fish Drown? is an irreverent and informative introduction to tricky questions about natural history, getting to the heart of the fascinating world of the animal kingdom and its varied cast. Why don’t humans have tails? Why can’t my dog talk to me? Why does a shark need such big teeth?

Why Don’t Fish Drown? encourages children to start asking and answering questions for themselves. The book is structured around twenty-two questions. Each section explores the question and answer with detailed illustrations, photographs, or diagrams and then asks further questions on a similar theme to help build an understanding of how some animals share characteristics while others may adapt in different ways to survive in the same environment.

Lighthearted but sophisticated and inventive in its content, Why Don’t Fish Drown? is a provocative introduction to natural history that enables children to feel confident asking and investigating the questions that interest them most.

Children love to ask questions nonstop, so this new and colorful picture book by Anna Clayborne called Why Don’t Fish Drown? should be a welcome addition to the family library. It covers just about every head-scratching, thought-provoking and even somewhat-silly question our child could ever ask about natural history and animals in the animal kingdom. — Picture Book Depot
