One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish is based on Dr. Seuss’ picture book, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. The interactive book has ten pages. It is for infants and toddlers. It is shorter than the One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish picture book.
Young kids have a short attention span, therefore One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish is perfect for infants and toddlers. They use the board book to learn colors and count to five. Across the top of the book, there are brightly colored fish. Children slide the fish from side to side as they count. The objects in the pictures are in primary colors. Use them to teach kids colors.
The rhyming verse is silly and fun. This is just the thing to capture a child’s attention. The repetitive pattern makes the text easy to remember and repeat. Move your figure under each word as you read, so once they memorize the text they learn to recognize the words. Also, to help develop language skills teach them recognize the beginning and ending sounds of words.
A word of caution to parents and caregivers. One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish has movable parts. Do not leave a child three-years-old and younger alone with the book. Place the Dr. Seuss board book on a high shelf, so they have access only under adult supervision. One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish is part of the Dr. Seuss Nursery Collection.
