The Future of Lake Simcoe Belongs to Our Young


Published by

A cheeky and fun kids book all about Lake Simcoe

This new book for kids 7 to 12 is a giant collection of their toughest and most intriguing questions, answered by experts, gathered by the Ladies of the Lake and presented in fun and funny kid-friendly ways.

Guaranteed to fascinate, amaze and inform; it’s full of ecology, science, history, technological and social innovation, urban planning, plants, fish and animals, geography and lore.

The ‘Do Fish Fart?’ Lake Simcoe book is modeled on Owl magazine’s ‘You Asked?’ book edited by none other than LOL co-founder and President, Annabel Slaight. That best seller sold over 200,000 copies!

96 pages full colour. Only $14.95 + tax
ISBN 078-0-9947928-1-5

Proceeds will benefit the Ontario Water Centre, a charity devoted to reconnecting people with Lake Simcoe so that they feel moved to protect it.







Cottage Life Magazine, Spring 2016

“Sure, the book is meant for those seven to 12 years old, but it’s infotainment for any Lake lover. Proceeds go towards boosting the health of the lake.”


Green Teacher Magazine, Issue 109, 2016

“By using children as the source of questions this book supports a greater scientific understanding of freshwater lake life in a way in which children can relate to…a great resource for anyone who wants to teach children about freshwater lakes, not just Lake Simcoe.”
