However thats not to take away anything from the beautifully worded text in the book!! It holds a deep message, that of to be happy and spread cheer, life goes on like it always does. Look for the deeper meaning or take it simplified like a child would with nothing lost, its beautiful. Full credit to the author for cleverly weaving in an important message in this feel good book that is usually lost in the hustle bustle of everyday life. And what better way is there to be reminded of that than while sharing a good book with your child!!
The book begins with the pout pout fish sulking around while he visited by many friends(with a little tidbit about every one of them) with good words of advice to cheer him up. But he has an answer for all of them, always tells them he cant cheer up, its beyond his control (jaded just like most of us :P )Along comes a silvery fish with no words but just a kiss of infectious happiness, and he is all cheery again . Equate it to a quiet hug we need sometimes. Pout pout fish is a cheery cheery fish now and he goes along smooching every creature that comes his way.Another lesson: pay it forward.
Love this book!!Some of the text that I really liked:
Along comes an octopus
with eight great arms
covered on the underside
with tiny sucker charms.
"Hey Mr Fish,
Let me tell it to you straight.
Your hulky-bulky sulking
Is an unattractive trait!"
Says the fish to his friend
"Mr Eight, my chum
with a mouth like mine
I am destined to be glum
"I'm a pout pout fish
with a pout pout face,
So I spread the dreary-wearies
All over the place."
I highly recommend this book!!
Additionally, if you or your little one loves the Pout Pout Fish I'd recommend listening to Gordon True singing the books on Youtube. It's hilarious :)
