    The big idea of the children’s informational book, Puffer Fish, is simply to inform its readers about puffer fish. The illustrations, language, and the fact that it is non-fiction are all reasons I really enjoyed the book.The illustrations are all real photographs of puffer fish from deep in the sea. The pictures, in my opinion, is the first thing that engages its readers to this book. They photographs show a variety of puffer fish: some that “…are as small as your hand,” “…longer than your arm,” and …some with “stripes or spots on their skin … [that] are very colorful.” However, my most favorite photograph in the book is a picture of a puffer fish with its mouth open showing only four teeth. The text says, “Puffer fish have four teeth. They use their teeth to crush their food.” It’s always fun learning interesting facts such as that and seeing a real illustration to make it meaningful.I also enjoyed the language in this book; it is clear, simple, and descriptive. For example, “Puffer fish have poison in their bodies. Some predators can die if they eat a puffer fish.” I really liked how, throughout the story, there were words in bold. Like in this sentence poison was bolded. This allows readers to look in the back of the book if they were unaware what its meaning is. So, if the language wasn’t clear enough, there is a glossary of vocabulary for the young readers to use a resource to clear any confusion. Non-fiction books are great reads. They are informative and can be engaging if organized properly. And I will say, this book was very neatly done. The illustrations and the language of this non-fictional children’s book most definitely make it a great read!
