Praise For Smile, Pout-Pout Fish

"This simplified version of Deisen and Hanna’s The Pout-Pout Fish (2008) is appropriate for babies and toddlers . . . Simple and sweet, this tale offers the lesson that sometimes, all that’s needed for a turnaround in mood is some cheer and encouragement to change our perspective. The clean, uncluttered illustrations are kept simple, except for the pout-pout fish’s features, which are delightfully expressive. Little ones will easily recognize and likely try to copy the sad, scared and angry looks that cross the fish’s face. An upbeat early book on feelings with a simple storyline that little ones will respond to." - Kirkus Reviews
