One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss

“A simple rhyming book for learner readers, it is a book with a freewheeling plot about a boy and a girl, and the many amazing creatures they have for friends and pets.”

“Deep in the water, Mr. Fish swims about with his fish face stuck in a permanent pout. Can his pals cheer him up? Is there something he can learn from an unexpected friend? Swim along with the pout-pout fish as he discovers that glum isn’t really his destiny. Bright ocean colors and playful rhyme come together in this fun fish story that’s sure to turn even the poutiest of frowns upside down."

Find out who triumphs at burping, bowling, Ping-Pong, piano playing, pie eating, and many more! Who will you root for?"

As her natural instincts lead her to food and friends and she glides and plays with the other mantas in the lagoon. Manta Ray’s life seems magical indeed.When she playfully skims under a fishing boat to scratch her back one day, Manta Ray is startled by harpoons streaking into the water around her. Zooming away, Manta discovers she is caught in the anchor line and is towing her attacker behind her!"
