Search for the Perfect Gift!

 

 

Mr. Fish is back in this new installment in the beloved “Pout Pout Fish” series of books. This time he is faced with a new dilemma. Mr Fish needs to find the “PERFECT” gift for all his friends. And he has a good idea of what a perfect gift looks like. In his own words:

 

A gift should be big,
And a gift should be bright.
And a gift should be perfect-
Guaranteed to bring delight.
And a gift should have meaning
Plus a bit of bling-zing,
So I’ll shop till I drop
For each just-right thing!

Mr Fish is ready to shop till he drops! He goes to the first store and finds many shiny things… too many things! How is poor Mr. Fish to decide?

Pout Pout Fish Christmas Inside

Its a busy shopping season. Fishes and sea creatures all around are in a tizzy crowd looking for the seasons best “thing”. Unfortunately for Mr. Fish, they are all SOLD OUT!!!

Poor Mr Fish is busy going from shop to shop. Soon its too late and stores are all closed or sold out. Whatever is Mr Fish going to do now??

In yet another fabulously silly and fun rhyme, author Deborah Diesen and illustrator Dan Hanna, give us a heart warming tale of Mr Fish’s deary weary woes and how one special friend lends a helping hand to find the TRUE meaning of Christmas cheer and giving.

A wonderful read aloud (once again), “The Not Very Merry Pout Pout Fish” comes to us at the right time reminding us about the true holiday spirit!

  1. My holiday shopping worry: making sure my kids know Christmas isn’t about getting stuff and that it’s all about helping and giving to others. That and spending too much money.

      That’s truly the one thing that we focus on as well. Spending time with each other is so much more important thanks for stopping by.

  3. What a cute book! I always try to get my shopping done early and then avoid the malls and the grocery store like the plague until Christmas is over. I don’t like the crowds.

    You know, I really think I miss out on some of the fabulous picture books around – and this looks like one of them! I must read more of them – then send them to my nieces And my biggest worry is that people will be disappointed with what I give them. Thanks for posting on the #kidlitbloghop
