Review: Little Fish and Mummy

I adore the Little Fish series; Where is Little Fish, Count with Little Fish and Hooray Little Fish. Now meet Little Fish and Mummy in a sturdy board book shaped like a fish.

In this story we join Mummy and Little Fish on their special day together. These two have a wonderful loving bond. Little Fish's  youthful excitement about exploring life is very endearing.

You and your little ones will also enjoy doing the same activities as Little Fish; blowing bubbles, splashing water, games of hide and seek, exploring new places and sharing lots of kisses.

The story met all of my expectations and ticked all the boxes when it comes to literacy learning; rhyme, rhythm and alliteration. The illustrations pop with bright colours and patterns. It provides many opportunities to explore names of colours and patterns, comparison of size and counting.

Once you've read all of the Little Fish series over and over again introduce your munchkins to Maisy. Some of my favourite Maisy books include;  Maisy Goes to a Wedding and Maisy Goes to a Bookshop.
