Title: Swishy Swishy!!! Jam, The Salmon Fishy
Illustrator: Chris Friend
Genre: Children's Picture Book
Synopsis: Jam, the Salmon Fishy, is a sweet, fun loving and wildly creative salmon that lives and swims in the ocean and lakes with family and good friends, including best friend, Jake. As cool as Jam is it could make any child an ideal pet, if only salmon were smaller.
In this first book, Jam explores fantasy wishing of experiences that would never happen in a fish’s world. Many of us wish for things we never could possibly have and then some of us realize the great amount of amazements and gifts we have in our life.
Swishy Swishy!! Jam, the Salmon Fishy is a lively and colorful tale about a fish who discovers all the gifts in his life.
Jam believes the grass is greener on the other side and begins wishing for all the things he thinks will make his life happier. Will Jam find what he's looking for?
This is such a wonderful story! I am a big fan of teaching gratitude from a young age and Swishy Swishy!! Jam, the Salmon Fishy does just that. Once Jam understand that he already has all he will ever need to bring him joy he gives up wishing. Often times, just like Jam, we wish and wish for things we believe will make us happier, and we fail to notice we already posses the gifts we need to be joyful. Children will delight in the vibrant illustrations which add to this clever fish tale.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
