Fish Hotel


Author(s) Lynn Markham, Justin Sipiorski (Illustrator).

Tessa and her cousin Hugo grab their snorkeling gear for an underwater adventure and end up learning that trees in the water are helpful to fish. A friendly neighbor teaches them how downed trees are like a fish hotel, providing shelter, food, and a place to lay their eggs. When the kids find out Uncle Henry is going to remove a downed tree from the water, they make the case to keep it in the lake as a fish hotel. This story of cooperation and friendly neighbors captures the spirit of up north and teaches us how leaving trees in the water helps fish and lakes. For ages 5 and up (30 pages; 2016).

Fish Hotel is available through the UW-Extension Lakes Bookstore at UW-Stevens Point.
