Pout Fish

fishThe Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen and Illustrated by Dan Hanna tells the story of a very sad fish.  All Pout Pout fish can do is spread his gloominess all over the ocean.  His ocean friends attempt, but are unable to cheer him up.  The end of the book is a cheery surprise.


The Pout Pout Fish is a fun rhythmic book to read to children.  Children also enjoy the colorful illustrations.  Be sure to make this book and craft  part of your summer reading.


  1.  Old CD (this is a good time to recycle)
  2. Black permanent marker
  3. 1 Googly eye
  4. Blue construction paper
  5. Glue or glue dots (glue dots work better on a cd)
  6. Scissors


  1. Cover the entire shiny side of the cd with small connecting semi-circles drawn with the black permanent marker (use pic as your guide)
  2. Cut a small circle (a little bigger than the googly eye) from the blue construction paper.
  3. Glue the googly eye to the blue circle.  
  4. Glue the circle and googly eye to the fish 
  5. Cut the lips,  top, bottom and back fins from the blue construction paper and glue in place.

Enjoy your new creation!
