Books are a wonderful gift for children. Children love to be read to and the Pout-Pout Fish books are always fun for kids and parents alike! The Pout-Pout fish finds it hard to be cheerful and often gets the “drearie wearies.” In this book, his sad mood is due to holiday shopping.
Pout-Pout is so worried about getting the perfect gift for his friends that he forgets the real reason for the season. I won’t tell you how he figures things out, but with the help of his friend, everything turns out perfect!
Kids love the sing song beat of this story and the colorful pictures are a perfect compliment to the narrative. I remember my daughter, Julianna, reciting the first pout-pout book when she was in college. She read it so many times to the kids at the daycare she worked at, that she had it memorized! Now she is the mother of her own little girl and this book will be wrapped and waiting under the tree for her!
