NO WHERE in the book does pout pout fish say "he's stupid"
He says "I am not smart", "I'll never get it", "I don't belong" "I should forget it"
Upon entering his first day of school, he gets lost and doesn't know where to go. Peering in shyly to other classrooms, he feel he doesn't belong because everyone is working on projects/activities that are way above his level.
His teacher finds him as he's about to give up. She corrects his negative thoughts/feelings and affirms he doesn't have to know what he hasn't learned yet.
As a mother to a four year old it's easy to see my son getting frustrated, wanting to give up. However, channeling the emotions, correction/ affirming is part of helping him realize, he can do hard things.
At the end of the story the entire class looks back fondly on the message of positive self talk and realizing they were able to accomplish what they put their mind to, once they learned it.
Maybe a little deep of a review for a children's book. However, I felt the need to steer the message of what I think the book was trying to convey. Humans get frustrated, turned around, lost. It opened up conversation of daily frustrations and working through road blocks my kid faces every day. Get the book. It's pout pout fish.
