"One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish is a fantastic book of poetry by Dr. Seuss. It has no real plot but is packed full of imaginative, silly and funny creatures doing all sorts of weird and wonderful things. It is a great book to introduce children to different poetry styles, with features such as alliteration, rhythm and rhyme, repetition and many tongue twisters.
It is also great for teaching children counting, colours and opposite words, these can be found in lines such as;
“Some are old. And some are new.Some are sad.And some are glad”
I absolutely love this book and found myself often laughing out loud. The illustrations are wacky and humorous.
This will be a fun book to read out loud to lower KS1 children or can be used inspire creative writing for the lower KS2 children. The children can explore rhyming words and create their own silly poems.

"This book is a wonderful story time book! It has colors, counting, rhyming, and letter repetition. The illustrations are wonderfully entertaining(as usual) and colorful. While the story itself is full of laughs that keep children on the edge of their seats. The only reason that I give this book a four-star is because of its length. Getting young children to sit still for this entire book would definitely be challenging for children in a group. Although it was my sons favorite bed-time story when he was 3!


Learning Experience:
I would bring in small laminated fish of all different colors with small magnets attached to the back of each one. With these I would bring in a few hand-made "fishing rods"(small plastic balloon sticks with the balloons detached)that have string tied to the end and a small magnet dangling at the end of the string. We would use these props to go fishing! I would pass out one fish to each student before fishing. They would then try to catch some fish of the same color. Afterwards we would all count our fish together.

"my favoirte of Seuss. It's of no plot, so there's the wonderland quality of just what's gonna happen next. Even after many reads, I really enjoy it because of the stream of thoughts, following no order, of interesting and DIVERSE (which he stresses) things of what you see throughout the day. There's the child's perception of "funny things" that is frank and genuine. Like wishing you had 11 fingers, or why do peole who can't read look at books, or imagining the fun in work (milking a cow, opening cans).



Lots of nouns and verbs and adjectives just moving meanings into the brain, try to think back to childhood when that still happened to you. Or those adults learning a new lanaguge now.



Making up words that automatically make sense is awesome to marvel, but even better to receive and believe as a reader.



Really wonderful to read out loud to kids, I think Suess is almost always meant to be spoken than to read to yourself. It all means something diffrent when the words are said than thought..

"This book was entertaining in the sense of the never ending rhyming and the tongue twister. I read this like in a minute because I was trying to read as fast as possible without getting tongue tied and i actually accomplished it. It essentially has no plot it is a story about all the different types of fishes and other creatures in the story. I caught myself laughing at the funny names and the different ways Dr. Seuss uses with the same words over and over again. I absolutely loved it and believe any kid will adore this book just for the simple fact that they are reading a book for enjoyment without any plot or anything to digest, just reading it for pleasure.

Whenever I read a Dr. Seuss book, I try to find whether it was turned into a movie or short film cartoon and while doing my research for this book I found a cute and hilarious video on YouTube of two boys rapping this book and I thought it was hilarious, difficult, and creative. I would never think in a million years that you can make a rap song out of Dr. Seuss. I believe you should check it out so I will leave the link down below. Thank you. :)

"When I was in 1st grade I read this entire book to the class. My teacher, Mrs Barley - gave me a mini trophy with a google eye sticker saying "Good Job." This award was not for reading the book, but the fact that I read the whole thing holding it in front of me - essentially reading it upside down. Even Mrs Barley had to hold books at an angle to read to the class and show the pictures. Yes, this is one of my shining childhood moments that I am most proud of. I can read upside down. I was thrilled to discover my 7 year old niece Mady can do the same as well! Not really sure if its really all that impressive - but it holds true to how a simple "good job" can build confidence in a child.
I read this book again just this week. Joce was having bad dreams about the kids version of Sherlock Holmes we had read before bed. Not reading that one before bed anymore... anyway so I thought a silly Dr Seuss book might perk her up to go back to sleep. She told me she was very confused about the flow of the book. It starts with fish and then goes into nonsensical creatures. We went back through it an realized that Seuss started it with fish and then developed into fish with legs and feet that walk and then into other animals - ones we find in nature and ones we don't (7 hump camels and 11 fingered what-not). Knowing that many of his books have underlying themes (Butter Battle book about the Cold War, The Grinch about consumerism, etc)is it possible he was talking about evolution here? Or am I just over thinking things and really this is just a silly book?

" Having been a kindergarten teacher plus having 3 children of my own I do believe I have read every Dr. Seuss book. We even had a Dr. Seuss day on which we made green eggs and ham. His books are all part of "must read" for children. " said.

" MY Favorite Dr. Suess book. I actually have the entire book memorized, my girls get a kick out of me reciting it! One of my many useless talents thank you! :) " said.

" My kid knows almost all the rhymes in this one already. It has some classic Seussian creatures – my favorite is the Clark that the kids found in the park. I think I’d freak if my kids brought one of those home! " said.
