SummaryAdd a Summary
For fans of Pout-Pout Fish, author Deborah Diesen has followed up The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark with a similarly reassuring picture book, The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School.
On Pout-Pout’s first day of school, he lost his way. Where was his locker? Which classroom was his? Where was his new teacher?
He peeked into various rooms and saw students who were writing, doing math and drawing geometric shapes. “I can’t do any of those things,” Pout-Pout thought sadly to himself, blowing some worried blub-blub bubbles. “Maybe I don’t belong at school!”
Just then, he met his new teacher in the hallway. Miss Hewitt was friendly and kind, and she took him to the kindergarten class which was especially for brand-new fish. She told Pout-Pout Fish that school was the place where students learned how to print, write, do math and draw shapes. “Now don’t you fret / You haven’t learned yet / I am here to help you learn… And I know that you can do it!”
This cleverly-written, rhythmic picture book introduces the joy of learning and will assuage children’s first-day fears about what will be expected of them at school.
** Recommended for ages 3 to 5 years.
