Book Review: One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

Rating: ★★★★☆

A rhythmic, rhyming book of real and imaginary creatures, illustrated in Seuss’s delightfully engaging style.  It is composed of short, funny scenes that are strung together to form a certain coherency as the creatures named become sillier and sillier.  After nine or ten read-alouds it starts to feel a bit long for adults, but the short scenes make it a good fit both for rambunctious toddlers with short attention spans, and early readers who will benefit from the achievement of finishing each scene.  It also comes in an audio version available for download here.
