Sophie's FIsh by A. E. Cannon

Have you ever babysat a fish?  If you did, would you know what kind of snack to feed the fish?  What kind of stories do fish like to hear?  What kind of games do you play with a fish?  Jake has agreed to watch Sophie's fish, and is very excited until these questions cross his mind.  He can't possibly be prepared for watching Yo-Yo.  But Yo-Yo is just a fish.....isn't he?  I loved this book.  The illustrations and the text go together perfectly.  You can feel Jake's anxiety about the fish sitting and it builds and builds both in words and his expression.   And the ending...well......you have to see it... :)
