Great child's book

Absolute classic. One of the most simple, yet solid book to read to your young children.

One Fish, Two Fish in Espanol

So many of my friends who are the first generation living in the US, they grew up speaking a different language, are frustrated with how little their children speak of their language. I had purchased this book for my nephew, whose mother is a 2nd generation Mexican; when speaking to my brother about the language challenge, he said that it isn't so much the 2nd generation to the US that care as much about this. BUT when my nephew's abuelita comes over, it brings great joy to her heart to find something she can read to her little nieto. It is a wonderful way to support growing up with 2 languages.

Short but sweet

This book is about 10 pages long and only a few words on every page, but my 16 month year old baby likes it. He also likes that he can play with the fish on top of the book. It still kinda teaches about colors and numbers one to five. A Preschooler would probably get bored with this, but just right for babies.

Short & cute

Although this book is shorter than the orginal, it's still a great book for early readers, or to read to babies

A Fun Book

For Read Across America night at school, a fellow teacher and I read bot the English and Spanish version of this book. the families really enjoyed it. With all the repetion, the children quickly picked up the Spanish words.

My Daughter's Favorite Book by Dr. Seuss

Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute. To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish was her pick as the best of the books by Dr. Seuss.One of the appeals of this book is that it is relatively easy to learn to read, yet has much more variety than most other early readers. So your child will feel like she or he has accomplished a lot with reading this book, which is correct.The title gives the key to why this book works well as an early reader. One word is changed at a time, with a clear illustration next to it. Most children will read the illustrations like a rebus and later associate the words with the sounds of the name for the pictures. At some point, they begin reading from the words. Very nice!Here's another sequence: "black fish blue fish old fish new fish."Then, when he moves on, he uses simple rhymes: "This one has a little star. This one has a little car."Next, he progresses to substituting "some" for "fish" and adding a single verb to make a sentence as in "Some are read . . . . Some are old."So almost any child can soon begin to read along with few errors in the first 2 or 3 pages. Whenever the child can go no more, you can just keep going. With repetition, more of the book becomes memorized and the process continues. There is another reward for you and your child: The book also previews many of the wonderful characters and rhyming schemes that appear in other Dr. Seuss books. As a result, it will be easier to get started reading those books. You will feel like you are seeing an old friend again. You can also use each rhyme to take off on your own speculations. Our daughter used to love to come up with alternative rhymes that fit the pictures. Books like this one make it great fun to be either a parent or a child. In some cases, this book will be there for you in both roles over 20 to 40 years!Overcome your mistaken beliefs about how children can start to learn to read by seeing your child start naturally by associating the words with the pictures as you read this wonderful book to him or her!
