The Pout Pout Fish

Here is another favorite from my kiddos’ bookshelf: The Pout-Pout Fish. My sister-in-law gave it to Evan quite some time ago and it became our go-to, must-read bedtime story for about five months straight. The main little line, "I’m a pout pout fish with a pout pout face so I spread the dreary wearies all over the place," is so catchy and Evan loved that he could "read" it with us. The line definitely will get stuck in your head, but not in a way that will make you crazy. The story line is really sweet and in the end the fish realizes that he isn’t a pout pout fish, he is a kiss kiss fish and starts spreading cheery cheeries all over the place. After I read the last line, I kiss Evan all over his face and head and he breaks into giggles…or wipes of my kisses, depending on his mood!

  1. My favorite kids books are the Mo Willems books right now. All of the Knuffle bunny books and the Pigeon books and the Elephant and Pig. You should check out the one where the Elephant and Pig realize that they are in a book and that there is a reader!

    Jackson loves the line “oogly boogly burbly bake. I make and I bake and I wait for the cake” from Froggy’s Birthday Surprise. He says it all the time when we make food together!
