by Paul Weathington, illustrated by Steve Shaw ’87
This children’s book explores the use of the “ish” phrase (“Ish helps us guess one’s age … fiftyish like Dad, Ish helps us get it close so no one is too mad!”). Shaw, an Atlanta freelance artist who teaches art at Atlanta’s Schenk School, portrays Ish as a barefoot, redheaded girl with a Cathylike heart on her dress, who ponders where she would be if she were a fish, wish, or dish. “Ish” is a creative way to introduce students to grammar concepts such as adjectives and suffixes.
