The Fish Issue

July/August 2016

Welcome to the world of Root & Star, the magazine for the WHOLE child — the wise, the wild, the strange & the sweet.

We bring meaningful literature and art to children all year long. Hooray!

In our fourth issue we wish for FISH.

Fish are fishy. Funny. Frizzled. Frequently freckled. Fish are Fantastic.
We go to the beach in this issue. We dive into the deep in ways that are silly and also… deep.
You will find in this issue:
A nautilus and other drawings of sea creatures.
A fable of a koi fish transforming into a golden dragon.
A classic poem about a jellyfish.
A fresh story featuring shark teeth.
An exploration of stinky socks.
The ghost-printing of seashells and other funny things.
We hope you enjoy this issue as much as we enjoyed making it!

This magazine issue includes amazing work by the best talent and heart we know, including:
Jeremy Charbonneau, Miles Debas, Amanda Ferris, David Gregal Jr., Krisanne Hastings, Christine Hartzler, Ruth Hofheimer, Erin Huber, Lida Larina, Sabrina Lee, Charles Alexandre Leseur, Courtney Mandryk, Raymond McDaniel, Bethann Garramon Merkle, Marianne Moore, Rumi, and Natalie Sopinka.

40 full-color pages of beauty and life.

The target audience for each magazine is children ages 2-7, or children who are being read to and/or are just learning to read — but because children are never far from their siblings and caregivers, we created a magazine that can be enjoyed by all ages, from 1 to 100.
