Little White Fish is a short and effective book to teach little kids about the different types of colours and fishes .All the major rainbow colours are covered in the book along with major types of sea creatures. The illustrations are beautiful and colour scheme bright and cheerful .
I recommend it as holds both education as well as entertainment for the kids

Little white fish is looking for his mommy. As he travels through the sea, he meets up with various sea animals of various different colours. Just a cute story about marine life, that also teaches colours. Simple pictures, simple text. My granddaughter loved it. I recommend this book to all family libraries and pre-school classrooms. The publisher, Clavis Publishing, generously provided me with a copy of this book to read. The rating, opinions and ideas shared are my own.

Very simple, but still working good. It's for very young children, and even if the story is simple and repetitive, it's written in a way you can questioned your child, and learn news vocabulary (names of animals and colors). Nothing out of the ordinary but a decent book!

Little White Fish is a lovely picture book and a very clever way to teach young kids basic colours.
Along the way the wee ones get to know quite a few sea animals.
Adding to it, our main character is very likeable and behaves pretty much exactly like the target group (the picture book is aimed at children 30 months and up).

The little white fish is in tears, he has lost his mommy.
Now the young reader is swept along with our cute main character as we are on a search to find mommy-fish. On every

I thought this was a lovely picture book. It’s great for teaching younger children colours in a clever way. It also allows little ones to learn names of some sea animals. I loved the illustrations in this book. Simple yet beautiful.

I read this book to my nephew and he really enjoyed it, so much so that we ended up reading it 3 times in a row. Will be purchasing this book for him and as gifts for other little ones in the family.

NetGalley provided me a free ARC in return for an honest review.

A cute, quick little book that talks about a fish looking for its mother. A nice book that would be fantastic as a board book to help develop a child's interest in colors and matching animals.

2.5/3. A fish looks for its mommy. A colors book for younger kids. It’s been done before and I didn’t find anything super special about it / why you wouldn’t use a different one or an Eric Carle classic instead.

It wouldn't be long before your toddler was vocalising the call and response nature of the text here, as s/he wouldn't only follow the adventures of the little white fish once. Oh no. There'd be multiple returns to this simple and attractive lesson.

Little White Fish has lost his mother and meets a variety of other sea creatures as he looks for her.

Little White Fish, who actually has a rainbow stripe down his back that is not easy to discern, will help teach young readers primary and secondary colors as well as the names of basic sea animals. The illustrations are simple and bright, and the author/illustrator employs a black background instead of white space, which makes the colors pop.

a simple color guessing game where white fish floats threw the ocean looking for his mommy nut keeps encountering other animals. Liked the message in the end as well as the simple color association.

Het is een grappig en vrolijk prentenboek. Het verhaal heeft weinig tekst en is daarom geschikt om aan jonge kinderen voor te lezen
