Great rhyme and cadence. One of my toddlers favorites. We’re on our second copy as the first wore out.

Fan favorite in my house. It was also a favorite in my preschool classroom!

My kids love the repetition in the book because they can help me “read” it in funny voices. I do like the overall message and it gets us talking about our feelings.

This is one of my toddler’s favorite books. The pictures are engaging and my kiddo loves to make all the same faces the fish do. The rhyming is captivating and enjoyable for an adult as well.

Do I love this book? No. However, do I get “I’m a pout pout fish with a pout pout face and I spread the weary dreary all over the place Blah Blah BLAH” stuck in my head? 100%

One of our top favorite books. The rhymes are so cute and it’s a great story about changing your mood.

I really dislike this book. I think the message is odd and I am always confused when it gets recommended.

My son loves repeating "blub blub blub". Great book that is essential in any child's library.

This is a top book in our household! Our daughter loves all the "blub blub blubs", and all the smooches we give her when we reach the end. It's a lighthearted, sweet book that is a lot of fun.

We got this story from the peds office and it was so amusing for baby L. He enjoyed the sound effects we made when we read it and he seemed eager to hear the story.

This book has a great theme and offers a new perspective on body image. Love!!

Probably our favorite book right now. Nice message and fun doing different voices for all of the fish.

Sweet book. Our little guy loves the “smooches” at the end
Sep 10, 2020
So, I love this one -- as did my daughter-- with one caveat. The kiss at the end does totally side-step bodily autonomy and consent, so we talked about that as she got older.

Love this easy to read book!

This is a really fun book to read. Mixed reviews from my kids. My oldest (4) has a hard time with the fish pouting all the time. It is a great book to learn about emotions.

Such an adorable book. It teaches your little ones to try and be happy and that there is always a silver lining. My son loves to make the smooching sound at the end of the book!

Got this from our baby shower. Such a cute book and a cuter message. Also the illustrations are wonderful.

Why would anyone regret the Pout Pout Fish! This is an all time favorite book to get and give for showers! There’s a sequel which is just as great!

Really well written/clever book. Super cute and easy to read Also a good lesson.

We really enjoy this book. People complaining about the message being inappropriate need to lighten up. It's a very fun book to read. My husband does the "blub, blub, BLUB" and cracks our baby up

I want to love this book and while the story and illustrations are very cute, it sends a message that intimate physical touch without approval is ok, and that's not something I want my kids to learn
Apr 11, 2019
Smooch! We read this book often. I love that it teaches my kids that we all look different but we can love one another.

Such a cute book. I like the repetition so the kids can "read" it with me. Great pictures.
Aug 04, 2018
So this may be one of my favorites, it’s a fun read. It’s a little long and wordy for my 20month old at the moment but she enjoys the noises and the ending.

My daughters FAVORITE book. We love how repetitive it is.
Feb 22, 2018
This is such a great book! Wish I had found it sooner!
Feb 19, 2018
This is one of our favorite books, I don't even mind reading it over and over with my girls. It's super cute!!
Jan 23, 2018
Super cute! One of the first books my little memorized!

Love this book! Don't know if I like this one or Pout Pout Fish Goes to School more! Nice rhyming book with positive message for my 4 yr old.

My first grader loves this book. We bought it when he was in kindergarten and it's a cute rhyming story.
Dec 23, 2017
Pout-Pout Fish is a story that your child will enjoy for many years even until they can read it on their own!
Nov 05, 2017
My son adores these books. Have purchased all the pout pout books
Nov 04, 2017
My kids quite liked this one. We still pick it up (three years later) from time to time. The story is catchy. I will say that the spin offs aren't great.

Love that this fish turns his frown upside down and discovers what he was meant to be!

great message about having a positive outlook
Jul 29, 2017
One of my all-time favorite kids books. Anyone that can incorporate "squelchy" and "kaleidoscope of mope" into a children's book is stellar IMO.
May 29, 2017
This is my sons FAVORITE book! He brings this to me daily, shoving it in my face "Blub blub blub!" It's cute and has a good rhythm to it!
May 10, 2017
Not our favorite, its ok. Colors are a bit too muted and the content didn't really seem to keep my children's attention.
Feb 28, 2017
We love the rhymes in this book, the beautiful pictures, and doing funny voices for all of the sea creatures.
Jan 31, 2017
So cute and fun to read! So refreshing compared to a lot of popular books for children. My baby loves listening too!
Dec 01, 2016
beautiful illustrations, we love the sing song rhymes
Oct 27, 2016
Love this book! It gets stuck in your head but it's s lot of fun to read and one of those I don't mind reading multiple times. Illustrations are good.
