Reading to your young child is important in developing their vocabulary skills as well as their communication skills. I read to my girls every night right before bed time, but I started thinking, what better way to get them more involved with reading, while I am working than to listen to a story book. I found that in The Pout Pout Fish Book and CD.
The Pout Pout Fish is about a sad little fish that does nothing but pout. As his friends try to get him to smile he comes up with some reason why he can't. Until one magical Kiss turns things around or will it?
The bright ocean colors and playful rhyme comes together in this fun fish story that's sure to turn even the poutiest of frowns upside down!
