A story for anyone who has felt like a fish out of water There's a boy in class who doesn't say anything. He doesn't yell when a student steps on his foot, and he writes his answers to the teacher's questions on the board. One of his classmates is trying to understand why he's so quiet, but she can't figure it out. But then one day the class goes to the science museum, and she discovers a phone with an aquarium full of fish on the other end of the line. And the fish, as it turns out, aren't silent after all-they just have their own way of communicating. This empathy-building story will encourage readers to approach others with compassion and understanding.
