One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish: Blue Back Book (Dr Seuss - Blue Back Book) (Dr. Seuss Blue Back Books) Paperback – International Edition, May 6, 2003 by Dr. Seuss (Author, Illustrator)

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish was one of my favorite books as a child. I grew up infatuated with rhyming and this book amazed me. Seuss introduces many odd characters through the book and laces their odd situations with even odd-er (if you will) rhymes. The way he writes is child-ish. He writes in simple english but loves to throw in made up names accompanied by illustrations of made up characters. Bump! Bump! Bump! Did you ever ride a Wump? (Seuss12) A Wump, actually, is a Camel-esque animal with excess hair and a happy posture. Illustration and font choice play a huge role in childrens literature. In most childrens books, you’ll find that many are filled with pictures and silly fonts that are meant to draw a childs attention to the book. Seuss follows close to this guide with his illustrations but strays away when it comes to the font choice. It seems like He used the default font that came on whatever word-processor his publisher used. If I had to guess, this may be because the book is aimed more at the parent reading the book to the child. I believe that the simple font choice also opens up more space for the childs imagination to run wild with the illustrations. Being one of Seuss more famous books, its odd that there is no real theme, recurring at least, that I can find. Seuss only spends one to three pages on each set of characters and then completely turns 180 degrees to another set of characters and a whole different story line. Really, the book is made up of a lot of story segments that loosely, if at all, tie in to each other. The tone of this work is playful (the best way I could think of to describe it). Its fun to sing if you sing with a Ying. My Ying can sing like anything. I sing high and my Ying sings low, and we are not too bad, you know. ( Seuss23) As a kid I loved hearing this book read to me. My parents would always change their voices to the character they were reading and always put extra emphasis on the rhymes and the made-up words. Check it out!

Amazon.com Review "Did you ever fly a kite in bed? Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?" Such are the profound, philosophical queries posed in this well-loved classic by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel. While many rhymes in this couplet collection resemble sphinx-worthy riddles, Seuss’s intention is clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. It matters little that each wonderful vignette has nothing to do with the one that follows. (We move seamlessly from a one-humped Wump and Mister Gump to yellow pets called the Zeds with one hair upon their heads.) Children today will be as entranced by these ridiculous rhymes as they have been since the book’s original publication in 1960–so amused and enchanted, in fact, they may not even notice they are learning to read!

My baby is the biggest (littlest) fan of Dr. Seuss. This isn’t her favorite book, but the musical rhythm of the rhymes is what endears this book (and all Seuss books) to her. It’s one of the longer Seuss books, which I like, but it can be a little too long for a 1-year-old. This one is a classic, and a keeper! I recommend it! -Read Reviews-

Dr. Seuss stories are a must for every child’s library. I bought this book for my sister’s sign in book for her baby shower. It was perfect. It matched the theme of "ocean. " It will be a keepsake that she will always look at because it is multifunctional. As she reads it to here baby she can see the signatures of everyone who attended her shower. If you have never read this story you should go out and buy it immediately. It is such a cute story and can teach your little one many different skills. It also has great pictures and is very durable!
