It's a Whale of a Tale
You've probably heard by now that there will be a Finding Nemo sequel released in 2015 titled Finding Dory. While I'm excited about a sequel to one of my favorite animated movies, I have to say 2015 is soooo long away! What's a fish fan to do? Read, of course! Here are some of my favorite fishy books to help "tide" you over:
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss
The classic tale of animals with typical Seussical names!
I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry
A giant squid brags about being bigger than everything else in the ocean--almost. Charming illustrations and a fun read aloud.
The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark by Ken Geist
In this spoof of The Three Little Pigs, Mama tells her three little fish that it's time to seek their fortunes. Jim builds a house of seaweed and Tim builds a house of sand, but it's up to Kim to find the house that will stop the big bad shark's munching and crunching.
Hooray for Fish by Lucy Cousins
Revel in all things fishy in this undersea riot of color and rhyme -- an oversize read-aloud from picture book artist Lucy Cousins. Paddle along with Little Fish on a mesmerizing underwater tour of friends spotty and stripy, happy and gripy, hairy and scary, even curly whirly and twisty twirly.
