The Pout Pout Fish
The Pout Pout Fish, by Deborah Diesen is one of our favorite family books – we always read it together. My favorite part is the kisses at the end; my daughter likes to see how low she can get her voice when she says, “blub, bluuuub, bluuuuuuuub”; my husband just likes to see how much he can make us both giggle.
The Pout-Pout Fish is a fun, rhyming picture book about a gloomy fish who discovers that being glum isn’t really his destiny. Bright ocean colors, playful language, and engaging characters make the story perfect for sharing at home or at school. Children of all ages love Mr. Fish’s transformation from a pout-pout fish to a kiss-kiss fish, and the story of The Pout-Pout Fish is all-but-guaranteed to turn a cranky child’s pout (or even a grown-up’s pout!) upside down.
