Book Love: The Pout-Pout Fish

Title: The Pout-Pout Fish
Author: Deborah Diesen
Illustrator: Dan Hanna

Why I Love This Book: You just never know when this delightful book will come in handy. There are so many topics you could address using this book, and I recently used it to talk about how to change your attitude from one of "dreary-wearies" to "cheery-cheeries."  The rhythmic, rhyming text combined with humorous and creative illustrations makes for a great read-aloud. I especially love how the illustrations depict the Pout-Pout Fish's moments of, well...pouting. The surprise ending is sure to cheer up any kid who's feeling a little down-in-the-dumps, and leave every listener with a smile on their face.
