What did you like about the book? Little Fish introduces readers to some unique ocean friends in this touch and feel board book. The Bumblebee Fish are furry, the Ele-fish has rough and wrinkly ears, the Starfish shines with silver foil, and Mommy Fish is soft and squishy. The bright gouache illustrations bring the magical undersea world to life in bold lines and bright colors. A fun choice for little ones.
