Where is Little Fish? by Lucy Cousins

Walker Books, 2018. ISBN 9781406374186
(Age: 1-3) This is a Little Fish Book, featuring the same fish from Count with Little Fish and Hooray for Fish. It is tactile and visually appealing, using the same illustrative style as Lucy Cousins' other books, such as Maisy. Everything is patterned with spots and stripes of varying vibrant design. Both the colours and the tone of the book are bold and cheerful. Playful illustrations encourage discussion about shape, colour, pattern, and things you find in the sea (crab, pearl, coral etc.). Little Fish is playing hide and seek with friends. Is Little Fish behind the yellow coral? No, it's stripy fish! In the end we find Little Fish and Mummy Fish too. Kiss, kiss, kiss! There are flaps on each page to keep toddlers engaged and interacting with the board book and they will have fun finding Little Fish at the end of the book.
This is a happy under-the-sea world to share with little ones, especially those who love the other Little Fish books.
