I first got this book for my 19 month old daughter thinking the bright colours would appeal. I was right! I got my 4 year old son a different book thinking "Hooray for Fish" was too simple. How wrong I was! They both love the book and enjoy reading it together (seeing as they have memorised it word for word now.) My daughter has been pointing out "stripes" and "spots" and "upside down" things everywhere we've been. The DVD is a great bonus.

We love this book. The minute my little on is in his room, he crawls over as fast as he can to fetch it and climbs on my lap with it. We love all the beautiful marine colours and bold designs. He jabs at the spots on the spotty fish and runs his fingers down the stripes of the stripey fish. We have actions for most pages and he loves it. In fact, we have it so often that his Dad and I now greet him with "hello little fish" sometimes.

In this charming book for pre-schoolers, Little Fish invites us to explore the ocean and meet all his friends. After being introduced to happy fish, grumpy fish, hairy fish, scary fish and even curly-wurly fish (amongst others), we finally get to meet Little Fish's favourite fish of all - Mummy!

Lucy Cousins, best known for creating Maisy the mouse, has really gone to town dreaming up all sorts of weird and wonderful undersea creatures. The illustrations are bold and enticing for young readers, and there are lots of lovely descriptive words in the text. The fact that some of the fish are very fanciful makes it a great book for spotting things - colours, shapes, stripes and spots, as well as hair, teeth and even a fish that looks like a pineapple!

This was, without a doubt, my daughter's favourite book in her first year. She loved to turn the pages and to look for Little Fish, who appears in each drawing. The board book edition is a nice size for little hands to hold, and robust enough to withstand a certain amount of rough treatment!

If you're looking for a fun tale packed with colourful characters, 'Hooray for Fish!' comes highly recommended.

Hooray for Fish! is guaranteed Cousins-quality, and this version of the book which comes with an accompanying DVD is an absolute winner!

The story itself is very short (most of the pages containing only a few words), and it follows Little Fish looking for his Mum and meeting fish of various shape, size and colour along the way. It's the illustrations that make this book what it is, you can only marvel at Cousins' amazing imagination at having come up with all the fantastic fish, from happy fish and grumpy fish to curly whirly and twisty twirly. I was delighted to hear my 3-year-old remembering each fish's name after the first read, and coming up with names for the un-named fish. His baby sister loves looking at the illustrations, too, and both really enjoy watching the story on the TV.

this is a lovely book to read with your kids - the bright engaing illustrations and simple fun text make it a firm favorite. my 4 year old enjoys pretending to read by shouting out memorised lines, her 6 year old brother, who can read a little, enjoys reading this book out loud to her, it is not too taxing and there are plenty of visual prompts. It also encorages counting as they love to try and count the fish on each page. It really is a joy to read to then - there is not so much text that it becomes a chore and there is plenty space for improvisation and audience participation. a great bedtime book!

My daughter was bought this book for Christmas last year when she was 9 months old. Since then we have read this book at least twice a day and the book is very well worn! Now, at 19 months, she can pretty much 'read' it herself as she has memorised most of the words and it has encouraged her to learn her colours and numbers. Fantastic book!

I bought a used copy and am happy with the quality. My little one, my husband and myself all love the book. It's so colourful and the text is easy and enjoyable. I definitely recommend it and will check other titles by this writer.

My son was given this book when he was a baby and he still loves me reading it to him. He is now 8! He suggested we return the favour and buy my nephew it, which of course we did! Such a lovely book, for all ages!
