    Book Review 4 out of 5 stars for One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, a children's picture book written in the 1960s by Dr. Seuss. I loved this one as a child, and probably read it around 7 or 8 years old, then again at 10. Between the rhymes and tongue-twisters, it encourages kids to laugh and have fun when reading.

    Whoa, this book rules!! There's so much imagination. I've had to read a lot of Dr Seuss to my kid in the past two years, and it's been really hit or miss. Sometimes you get something classic like Green Eggs and Ham and sometimes you get a crap show like Cat in the Hat 2. So this one really surprised me! It was wonderful. My kid was riveted. Super fun.

    This is the first book I ever read out loud to my mom by myself. Because of this, it will always have a special place in my heart. We had just moved to Illinois. I was 4 1/2. I kept asking my mom to read to me, but she was busy unpacking boxes. She said, "Sound out the words, just like I showed you, and you can do it yourself."

It earns its place as one of the most quotable (possibly only Green Eggs and Ham is more often quoted) and fun to read aloud (after only Fox in Socks), but it stays firmly in the middle tier because it lacks three things: 1) The classic Dr Seuss creations. That book doesn't introduce a Who, a Cat in the Hat, Mulberry Street, Green Eggs, Grinches, or other new element to our culture is not a criticism. It does, however, set those books apart as critical pieces that added to our society in some way; they rise above this book. 2) Giesel's overt moralizing. Whether teaching is about size versus importance, making your own fun and cleaning up after it, the futility of war, or even a covert (and possibly unintentional) lesson on ambiguous modifiers, Seuss' classics do what the greatest children's literature does; they remind us as adults of lessons we needed to grow up and need now not to forget. 3) Covert study of a philosophical principle. This may be all in interpretation (no one suggests that Giessel intended these), but many readers for decades have found the Seuss books' repetition and variation of a theme to serve as a metaphor or direct example of something universal. Whether it's a question of imagination in play and its social consequence (The Cat in the Hat), ontological questions about Platonic ideals (Green Eggs and Ham, which rejects the notion that the environment is relevant to the enjoyment of the food), the Freudian question of experience and its ability to drive all future behavior (How the Grinch Stole Christmas), or a more complex example such as To Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, which combines all of the above in various ways), the very best of Seuss takes a universal question and circles it, showing us various views in fanciful ways while using childlike tropes to strip the question down to its abstract base. It doesn't do this because Giessel intended to be a philosopher, but because he though about children and learning in deep ways inherent to the essence of experiencing humanity. In this context, One Fish, Two Fish... is a fine and enjoyable book, and one that I will enjoy reading many times; its three-star rating is only because it is a relative trifle in the Seuss canon when seen next to his many masterpieces. It isn't one you'll go back to over decades for inspiration, when teaching your children, or as an example to understand or explain a principle implicit to Giessel's thinking and vital to us all. It's a great book. Get it. Read it. But it earns an "I Liked It" on the Goodreads scale. Don't think of passing up Fox in Socks, Horton Hears a Who, The Cat in the Hat, or other of his classics in favor of this one.

    Another ball out of the canon from Dr. Seuss. “From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” Simply remarkable with the tongue twister of a rhythm. Enjoyment knows no bounds and age is just a number. The tune of this poem is hard to get out of the head. ALL YOUR LIFE! I am reading this to my kids. No more the simple 4 lines of Humpty Dumpty. Dr. Seuss has arrived in their lives.

    Sheer poetry! One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish is a pure genius work of epic poetry. The beginning of the tale focuses on...you guessed it...fish. Pages and pages of fish with various characteristics (mostly harmless) are paraded before the reader in flashes of color and humor. But then (and this is where Dr. Seuss lost a star rating from me) the story veers off and begins introducing a random cast of beings more strange than an assortment of beasties rejected from a circus of the bizarre Sheer poetry!

But then (and this is where Dr. Seuss lost a star rating from me) the story veers off and begins introducing a random cast of beings more strange than an assortment of beasties rejected from a circus of the bizarre for being too grotesque for the relatively polite society of carnies. Most appear to have been enslaved by a young boy and girl who claim these poor creatures are "pets," while forcing them into hard labor or using their mortal frames in mocked up games. Those who escape torture at the hands of the children are often no more fortunate. Take "Ned" for example. Ned does not fit in his bed, not his feet nor his head. It's absolutely tragic...

    WrensReads Review: Rhymes Rhymes Rhymes, My My My Dr. Seuss is a classic and a poet and... no, I'm not going to be that cliché. There wasn't much lesson with this one like some that he has, or purpose really. I think really he wanted to show kids that your imagination is important. Because obviously a lot of the things said are impossible, but the impossible is fun, you know? It is important to be impossible. WrensReads | Goodreads | Twitter | Instagram

    There are so many Dr. Seuss books that I love. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish was a childhood favorite for sure. It still remains a treasure because the simple words and rhymes encourage children to read and they love it. Children love the colorful illustrations too. 5*****

    I was expecting this book to be about two (or possibly four 🤔) different colored fish — boy was I wrong! Rather, hoards of characters of all shapes and sizes are introduced in quick succession, most of them not sea-dwellers at all. I felt the author could’ve explored each character in more depth, but hey, as a doctor I’m sure he’s very busy.

    When I reach for a Dr. Seuss, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish is never the book I reach for. If I need something quick because the kids are late for bed, I grab The Sneetches and pick a tale. If there's more time, but I'm still in a hurry, Green Eggs and Ham is the perfect choice. When two year old Scoutie wants a book, I grab the easiest Seuss of them all, Hop on Pop (just as I did when the twins were babes).

Hell, I am even more likely to read the Seuss-lite Go Dog. Go than One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. But if my kids grab it, and Scoutie's been doing that a lot lately, I'll gladly traverse the bizaare landscape of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Of all Seuss's book, this is the least cohesive. It's just an excuse to rhyme. Nothing more than that. Mr. Brown makes an odd appearance. There's whiny Ned in his too small bed. Yet there's that great line: "From there to here, from here to there funny things are everywhere," and it's some of Seuss's best art. It's a good book. the kids love it, and Scoutie can't get enough. Honestly, I love it too. But I never reach for it and probably never will, which is okay ... it always winds up in my hands somehow.

    One of the joys of being a parent is sharing old favorites with my children. Harriet and Sean are now discovering Dr. Seuss. We are reading through all of his books and have landed on my all time favorite: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. From the time I was Harriet's age to being in second or third grade, I read this book on an almost daily basis. I really don't know how many times I've read it (either listening to it being read by one of my parents or reading it myself). One Fish, Two One of the joys of being a parent is sharing old favorites with my children. Harriet and Sean are now discovering Dr. Seuss. We are reading through all of his books and have landed on my all time favorite: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. From the time I was Harriet's age to being in second or third grade, I read this book on an almost daily basis. I really don't know how many times I've read it (either listening to it being read by one of my parents or reading it myself). One Fish, Two Fish... begins with this little dedication: "From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere." This book revels in the silly. It starts off simply enough with fish of different color and fish of different ages. Then it spirals out of control with fish driving cars and even sillier things. The book doesn't have a plot. It's a series of tongue twisters presented as short scenes, almost like vaudeville routines. Witnessing these different examples of silly are a boy and a girl (or a Sean and a Harriet as my children see things). They watch creatures run (just for fun), different animals with different feet (and numbers of legs), and they go on a ride with Mr. Gump's Wump. There is Ned and his bed with holes in the most annoying of places. I wonder if he'll ever get a descent night's sleep? There are animals for opening cans, and others for boxing, ones who have hair for brushing and so forth. In all of this silliness are Dr. Seuss's illustrations. All of the creatures have Seuss's unique style, being somewhat shaggy (even the fish). I can remember sometimes just flipping through the book to enjoy the drawings. My favorites are the pink ink drinking yink, can opening zans, the sleep walking sheep and the hook cook book.

I read this book and although I enjoyed it very much it just didn't have the charm of the Grinch for me. Maybe it is for even younger children than the Grinch but there was just something missing. Don't despair though, it is still as clever as his other works and is still worth a read.

    Who doesn't like Dr. Seuess? Even my 18-month-old picks this book over her previous favorites, wanting to read this book cover-to-cover (an amazing feat for an 18-month-old to sit still that long) at least twice in a row.
