What did you like about the book?  This board book version of the picture book brings the fun of the ocean to youngest readers.  Bright illustrations with bold black outlines present a sea of colorful fish to complement the rhyming text.  “Hello, hairy fish, scary fish, eye fish, shy fish, fly fish, sky fish.”  The little orange polka dot fish swims through a variety of fish until he finds the one he loves best, his mom.  Sure to be a popular board book title.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  No.

To whom would you recommend this book?     Fans of the author’s Maisy series will enjoy this one.  Pair it with other fishy tales such as Dr. Seuss’ One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, for a fun ocean themed story time.

Where would you shelve it?   Board Books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles? No
