So Many Books.... So Little Time !

The Pout Pout Fish
By: Deborah Diesen

A cute, rhyming picture book about a gloomy fish who discovers that being glum isn't really his destiny. I love the beautiful, engaging illustrations in this book!

I love this book as a read aloud! Of course there are many teachable attributes. There are rhyming patterns, the ocean habitat, or the theme of friendship. There is also a variety of emotions on the other sea creatures in the story. With 4th or 5th graders, a teacher could cover up the text and use this illustrations to teach inference.


  1. Thanks for reviewing The Pout-Pout Fish!
