One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

one fish twofish red fish blue fishIn this hilarious exploration of opposites, colours, numbers and nonsense, Dr Seuss paints a crazy world of singing Yings, boxing Goxes and seven hump wumps.

The grade twos enjoyed listening to this whacky tale.  It sparked the conversation of which comes first – the story or the illustrations.  We discussed how in most instances the story always comes first.  However, with this particular book we thought that the great Dr would have drawn the crazy characters first and then come up with the words to fit the character. Whatever the process, one thing is for sure, Dr Seuss certainly has a wild imagination!

After the book we got to work to create some of our own fish using hand prints. Take a look…..

Now for the finished product………
