Staff Reviews


The Pout-Pout Fish is back, and this time he's got a problem: He's just started school, but all the other kids seem to know everything already. He can't write his name, he can't do any math, and he can't draw any shapes. How will he ever fit in? But then his teacher brings him to the beginner's class, where all the brand new students can learn together. They discover that they can learn to do all the things the older kids can do! An adorably reassuring look at starting school and the fear and uncertainty that go with it. (Arielle)
