‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Guido van Genechten
Age Range: Under_5
This is an unusual little board book with collage-style images by award-winning illustrator, Guido van Genechten . Its bold primary colours on a black background make it a distinctive and eye-catching book for babies to look at, but it really comes into its own as way of promoting discussion and learning colours with toddlers.
Simple repetitive text sees Little Fish on a mission to find his mother and seeking the young reader’s help. As he meets one sea-dwelling character after another, the book asks whether or not the character on this page is his mother. In the course of the journey, we encounter a series of lively ocean inhabitants including a red crab, a green turtle and a blue whale…until we finally find his mother and discover that she is all the colours of the rainbow – just like Little Fish.
