In 34 colorful, imaginative pages, Abigail and The Fish Tree, by Sonali Ranaweera, relates the story of a young girl who uses her curiosity and creativity to produce a gardening wonder in her family’s backyard. When she sees that the fish tree she grew is not perfect – she instinctively does what almost any inventor knows: makes plans to improve the next version. Intended for children ages 5 to 8, Abigail and The Fish Tree promises to become a valuable tool for encouraging youngsters to both enhance their reading skills and encourage them to explore their creativity. Older elementary school, as well as middle school students can also use the e-book for writing assignments, as an example of how to use their imaginations.
