Readers are challenged to find hidden letters and things that help them see in the illustrations. This is a fun book for English learners! The text of this book can be read or sung.

Fish Friends
Count up to five as the fish find their friends. Count back down again as the fish go back home. This book started as a song that our grandchildren could sing in the bathtub with their fish toys. It is simple enough that our friends are translating it into other languages to use with preschoolers as they learn their numbers and colors. You can also sing the song as a group game.
