Be Silly. Be honest. Be kind.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
Al is a fish. A really, really big
fish. Although he is kind-hearted, other fish have a
very hard time getting past his looks. He is just
too big and too scary. Try as he might to change his
appearance, Al just can't get a break. No one wants
to be his friend. Then, one day a fishing net is
dropped into the sea, and Al shows the other fish
his true colors.
This is a captivating story
showing just how little appearance matters. Through
the character of Big Al, children receive a
wonderful lesson on character and bravery.
