What did you like about the book? This book starts out with one lonely fish who is gradually joined by a second fish, then a third, eventually ending with ten fish- but takes a turn and ends with one fish again.  This is a very silly counting book from one to ten.  The illustrations are very cute and bright and engaging with funny shaped pages that will keep kids entertained!

Anything you didn’t like about it?  There is nothing I didn’t like. 

To whom would you recommend this book?  This is a great book for kids learning to count and for those who like a good chuckle.

Who should buy this book? Children’s libraries

Where would you shelve it? juvenile board books

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