Go For The Goldfish

Children's Stage at Decatur Recreation Center presented by Decatur Education Foundation

Saturday, 1:00-1:30

Sometimes life in a fish bowl isn't all it's cracked up to be. In Philip Stead and Matthew Cordell's The Only Fish in the Sea and Anica Mrose Rissi's The Teacher's Pet, young readers are taken on an unexpected adventure: what happens when your pet gets out? In these heartwarming tales of friendship and fish, brave characters must learn to navigate deep waters.
