Kathryn Reads KidLit

I am an upper elementary teacher who loves reading and sharing books with my students and fellow educators.

The Fourteenth Goldfish

The Fourteenth Goldfish - Jennifer L. Holm I love that we have a female character here who gently develops a love of science and discovery through the course of the book. At the same time, it is a nuanced understanding and I think that the examples used in the book will help kids to understand that discoveries have consequences and that is an important part of science that we don't often consider at this grade level, but that is increasingly important in our world with technology and science advancing so quickly. Aside from that, it is just a great story, with interesting characters and it addresses these big science issues right alongside the normal concerns of middle schools kids - friends, boys/girls, and other aspects of growing up. I plan to read it aloud to my class. Grades 4+ Read July 2014
