I Love Goldfish / Bumba Books

Written by Harold T. Rober

This book provides information about a boy that gets a pet goldfish. It tells about how to care for goldfish.

It is part of an assortment of easy non-fiction books called Bumba Books:

  • Look, a Clown Fish
  • It’s Thanksgiving
  • Fall Is Fun!
  • Monster Trucks on the Go
  • Hooray for Teachers
  • Soccer Time!
  • I love Goldfish

Each book provides a good introduction to the topic with simple words that are easy to understand for early readers. Colorful photos are helpful to the reader in understanding the subject. Throughout each book, you’ll find critical thinking questions. These can be used to engage young readers in thinking critically about the topic and in using the text and photos to do so.

    This looks to be not only eye catching but educational also! I think I’d like to add some to our collection!

  2. Thanks Pam for your review. I wish i would have had this book as a student asked me about a book to take care of a goldfish and this one sounds perfect. I will have to add it to the list.

  3. These kind of books go out often at our school. The students like colorful pictures, and finding fast facts. All my life I’ve been told not to judge a book by its cover, but when a book has a great cover like this one, how can it be helped?!?! Thanks for the great review, Pam.
