Lucy Cousins has a very distinct and engaging illustrating style. Simple, thick lines pared with bold and inviting colors draw the youngest readers in. With Hooray for Fish! she uses her vivid imagination to create such creatures as “ele-fish” and “shelly fish” (to name just a few) which open the door for all sorts of conversations between the reader and the audience. This book is just the right length and tempo for the younger readers, but even some of the older readers will get a kick out of the whimsical fish.
This book works for both one on one sharing as well in a storytime situation.
