I got this Read to Me book for my grandson who was starting school this year.  He like books that rhyme and with this book he very quickly learned to tell the story right along with the book.  One great thing about Pout -Pout Fish books.... the narrator is very good at entertaining the kids with his dramatic reading style.  Great little book for kids just starting out in school.

Pout-Pout Fish does it again, and now he's going to school!  A funny little rhyming game that Mr. Fish plays with himself that encourages your child to discuss why they are hesitant about starting school.  Mr. Fish is scared and worried he is not ready for school. He does not know where to go and finds himself in different classrooms trying different things, like writing and math, that he does not know how to do. This overwhelms him and he gets upset because he does not know how to do these things yet and he wants to leave school.  His teacher finds him and explains that when you're a new fishie, you're not suppose to know these things yet. You start in a classroom that will help you and one day you will learn how to write, do math, and much more. Don't be discouraged, just try and you'll succeed.  I have to admit, the beginning of the book felt a little discouraging. But, we must remember, Mr. Fish is a pouty fish that sees the negatives first and needs help seeing the positives to in order to turn his frowny face upside down! Like most little kids around the age 3-5, they want to do so much, but because they are so little, they get discouraged very easily and need all the guidance and support that they can get. Mr. Fish and his teacher are sure to give them a much needed boost in realizing that they're not alone and that they will get to where they want to. Again, the illustrations are wonderfully done in a mystical underwater setting that is fun and relatable. Adorable as always! Looking forward to more books in the near future.
