The Great Carp Escape Children's Book Review


 About the Book

 Tadpoles, clams, and minnows wow! For siblings Beth and Paul, growing up on a lake is fun... until they are startled by a fishy find along the shoreline. When they discover the scaly, moustached carp, they become afraid.

Seasons pass, and Beth and Paul avoid the swampy reeds at all costs until a flood brings about a life-or-death situation for the creepy looking carp, right in their own backyard!

With guidance from their father, will Beth and Paul be able to overcome their apprehensions about the carp and help save them before it s too late? Watch the Trailer!

The Great Carp Escape "truly captures the magic between children and nature. The story paints a beautiful picture of how all creatures on earth are God-given and shows how compassion shouldn't be based on popularity or defined beauty. This delightful and touching story carries such an important message of acceptance and simply joy. A pleasure to read and surely a popular addition to any child s home library. " (Goodreads)

 My Thoughts

I really enjoyed this little book! I think it is a fun story for children with a good message. The illustrations are lovely and the overall back story is that God made all things for a purpose, even when we think things are ugly. We shouldn't be quick to judge and need to be kind and this story teaches children what that means.

"All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small, 
All things wise and wonderful, 
The Lord God made them all."
