Brushing off the admonishments of his friends to stop being such a gloomy gus, (Ms. Clam with her winning smile, graceful Mr. Jelly(fish), slender Mrs. Squid, and Mr. Eight, an octopus who just lays it right out there: "Your hulky-bulky sulking is an unattractive trait!", the pout-pout fish has come to believe that spreading the "dreary-wearies" is just who he is, and accepted it as his fate. Then one day a new fish arrives, and rather than dispensing more words, she non-judgementally gives him a simple kiss and swims away. Experiencing how good her gesture made him feel, that simple act awakens the pout-pout fish to the possibility of what he himself might be capable of - "spreading cheery-cheeries all over the place!"
At just 2 1/2, we weren't able to explain it in those exact words to our grandson, but he's past 3 now and children at young ages have minds just like sponges - though they might not realize it, those are the lessons they'll begin soaking in with this charming book. REALLY like this book! Sturdy 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" book with thick pages for child-friendly turning.
Anyway. This activity book has a really nice variety of sticker-activities. I like that it’s not just “add these stickers to the scene” but includes alphabet activities, matching, and even jigsaw-puzzle-sticker pieces to complete the picture. And then, for those moments when your kid clearly doesn’t want to fovysvon anythjng as structured as a puzzle, there are plenty of “open-ended” scenes to let your preschooler just have some good quiet-time sticker fun. And if your kid, like mine, takes some alphabet stickers a s has then floating underwater, I won’t tell. :)
In short, many months after our purchase, we are still getting tons of use and fun and smiles from this book. If the author/illustrator team decided to put out a second volume (please?) we’d definitely add it to our Pout-pout collection!
