This is a wonderful book that you won't mind reading over and over again. And you will! Both of my children begged me to read it daily. The unusually bright colors and fish "eyes" throughout the book fascinate even the youngest readers; and the counting and adding keep the child interested and challenged as they grow. It makes a great gift book.

I love this book and it is perfect for the Early Years maths lessons. Children love to hear the story. The pictures are clear and colourful.
It arrived promptly and well-packed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a keeper! 12 April 2002
By History_of_Art_Geek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
Come on a journey deep at sea, to count the many fish we'll see...
I have an affinity for well-written children's books, so when I first read Fish Eyes I was immediately taken by the prose, and the artwork. Years later, after William was born, I realized how intriguing vivid colors were to babies. I started reading to him when he was only a few days old, and every time I picked up THIS book, he was mesmerized. Maybe it was the melodic phrasing, but I think it was the illustrations more than anything.
Fish Eyes is primarily a numbers and counting book that is geared to the very young, 0 to 3 years. This book counts up to 10. In the counting section, the eyes on the fish are punched-out, leaving holes. Children can count fish, or fish eyes. It's an ingenious way of educating kids by interactive means. In addition, there are simple arithmetic lessons cleverly hidden in the sea for older children. In the corner of each spread is a small fish that appears as a shadow. The fish poses a questions like, "3 smiling fish, plus me make 4". Only older children are apt to notice such minutiae, or I should say, they understand it at least. That's why Fish Eyes is so brilliant.
The vibrant colors engaged my son so, that we would study each page after reading the text. Once he was able to hold the book, the die-cut eyes lured him to touch. For a long while, Fish Eyes was one of Will's favorite books. As a result, it has become one of my standard baby gifts. Will is 2½ now, and he knows his numbers, probably in part because of this book. Once he gets around to learning arithmetic, Fish Eyes will surely be one we'll take off the shelf again, and again. ... you won't be sorry!
Happy Reading,
Mary

5.0 out of 5 stars Start early! 13 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
We love this book! Our son is only 2 months old and as a teacher, I know the importance of reading from the beginning. We read this book to our baby & he loves it. He loves to listen to our voices w/ the different inflections and the bright, colorful pictures are great- he really stares & smiles. I know we will continue to use this book as he grows, with the cute rhymes and the counting practice (even addition: "one fish plus me makes two!"). I will give this book as a baby gift from now on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book your child will enjoy from babyhood to early reading 30 Sept. 2001
By mirope - Published on Amazon.com

"Fish Eyes" is a pleasure to read aloud, and the colorful illustrations are a treat. This book will appeal to young children on many levels, and they will continue to find it fascinating as they grow older. When they conquer the basic counting concepts in the primary story, they will enjoy the subtle lesson in addition that is included as obtional text. As an added bonus, the cut-out fish eyes are make the book fun for very young children to flip through and enjoy on their own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Abook to grow with 11 Jun. 2011
By jrreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
As a children's librarian, I'm familiar with most quality picture books. Now that I'm a grandmother I find it's difficult finding good literature for babies, but this book is perfect. My grandson has been fascinated with it since I gave it to him at 4 months, and now he's 9 months, he keeps finding new ways to interact. The colors attracted him first, the text is just the right length so he doesn't lose interest (and it's well written), we can practice counting (and move on to the addition when he's older). Unlike some board books, I can hold it so the next page opens just enough for him to grab it and turn it himself. Now he's discovered he can poke his finger into the 'fish eye' holes, and I can touch it from the back of the page, or move my finger over the back of the holes so the fish seem to blink. This is a concept book on so many levels, and an activity book as well; it's never boring. I only wish there were more of this caliber.
