Jennifer Holm takes on the interesting topic of aging in The Fourteenth Goldfish (Lexile: 550; Interest Level: Graded 3-6) when Ellie is confronted with a bossy, obnoxious boy who looks and acts a lot like her scientist grandfather. Wait... It can't really be her grandfather standing there sassing her mother, can it? If it is, what is Ellie going to do about it?
Join Ellie as she gets to know her grandfather, and scientific inquiry, in ways she never expected to. Fans of Jennifer L. Holmes' other works and anyone interested in the old tale of the Fountain of Youth will find this story fun and engaging. (240 p.)
One of the reasons I became an elementary school librarian is so I can read children's books.
