“She approaches Mr. Fish, but instead of saying hey...she plants a kiss upon his pout and then she swims away.“

This was a picture book. It had a repetitive structure that made the same replies and questions happen until suddenly a turn was taken and as a result, the pout pout fish became happy again. Its illustrations kept me entertained and the watercolors added to the effect of under the sea. It also showed different moods that each fish had in an effective way to get a better sense of characterization.

Cute story with a good plot showed how one regular sad fish became happy in the end.

The Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen and Illustrated by Dan Hanna is an adorable MF PB that tells the tale of a fish who thinks he‘s destined to be glum. I think if you are sorry enough this book is great for an interactive Story Telling. It‘s also wonderful to teaching about the growth mindset. Strategies that I would include in the lesson would be: ESL 23 and UDL 9.1 a good resource for this text is linked below. #UCFLAE3414SU19 #nosegoodbooks

Kcompton2912 I absolutely loved seeing this book as a storytelling. It was so much fun to listen to. I think the resource make the story go from simple to critical thinking. Having the fish represent a growth mindset is a fun way to teach it to the class. 6mo
jmartucci Such a fun book for the classroom! And the resource has some great ideas! 6mo

Mary_Dehner @Kcompton2912 thank you! I was a little nervous but it helped me understand how I can do it better next time! 6mo
Mary_Dehner @alexialovesmith yes I agree! I made a connection with the article we read in class, which is why I picked that strategy. 6mo

This book teaches that depression is cured with kisses and led to a discussion with my child about consent. So if in the #metoo era you‘re looking for an opportunity to teach a preschooler or kindergartener about consent, maybe read them this book. Otherwise I don‘t recommend it.

An adorable children‘s book about a fish who thinks he‘s destined to be a #debbiedowner but at the end gains a new perspective when another fish sees him in a new light. “I‘m a pout-pout fish with a pout-pout face so I spread the dreary-wearies all over the place.” #NoFemmeBer @Cinfhen @Billypar

The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They don‘t deceive you with thrills and trick endings. They don‘t surprise you with the unforeseen. They are as familiar as the house you live in. Or the smell of your lover‘s skin. You know how they end, yet you listen as though you don‘t. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you won‘t. In the Great Stories you know who lives, who dies, who finds love, who doesn‘t. And yet you want to know again.

That is their mystery and their magic. | 3. Haroun and the sea of stories.

The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Dieson and illustrated by Dan Hanna is a TL that would be great for a RT. This was a New York Times Bestseller. The book starts off with a gloomy Pout-Pout Fish; the spreads gloom wherever he goes. He repeats himself with each sea creature that he meets, “I‘m a pout-pout fish, with a pout-pout face, So I spread the dreary-wearies all over the place.” It wasn‘t until he met a silent silver shimmer, that gives him a

HNager kiss did his mood change. He became a kiss-kiss fish. He then goes around and smooches all the creatures. The EL I would use is 8, use direct instructions, the UDL is 2.4 promote understanding across languages. Teacher Resources and Activities: http://poutpoutfish.com/teacher-resources/ #ucflae3414f17 2y

The Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen is a one of a kind animal fantasy book. It is my daughter's favorite book and we read it almost every night. We basically rap the words to the book because it rhymes and has amazing flow. It is about a fish who basically has "resting b**** face" ?. The link is a song (not rap) that could be used in the classroom https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gynYtBmYlnk #UCFlae3414sp17

AmberC She's adorable and I love the pout pout fish! Plus that song sounds so cool. 3y
DrSpalding Your daughter is precious and the song fun. 3y

The baby made out this year! I actually missed a couple of books to include in the picture but The Pout Pout Fish had been a runaway hit. The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet is for my husband but I plan on getting my hands on it 😉 #BookishGifts #SeasonsReadings2016 #RaisingAReader

Blub, bluub, bluuuuub.
Is it just me, or does the pout pout fish look less pouty and more like he is in a state of sheer terror at times?
Either way, I ❤️ this book so much!

Somehow I missed this one when my daughter was a baby. It was introduced to us when our neighbor invited us over to read to her baby. We now own the board book version! My daughter liked it better than the picture book edition. Better late than never🤓

For #recommendsday I'm throwing a children's book out there because it is my son's FAVORITE. Very silly and fun to read - over and over and over again, like we do!
