Rocking the Tide

Illustrated by Mike Moran

About The Book

From acclaimed, prolific author Jane Yolen comes a colorful Level 1 Ready-to-Read story all about a school music concert!

The fish are performing a music concert at school. But then they start to worry:

“What if a current
grabs my strings?
What if our soloist
never sings?”


School performances can be full of jitters but can also be very rewarding. Beginning readers can follow along as the fish overcome their stage fright and take to the stage!
