Book Review: One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss

This was one of my very favorite books as a kid. My cousin and I would read it over and over and each time, we'd make up new rhymes. Dr. Seuss teaches counting skills, rhyming skills, and teaches that all sorts of things come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  

After reading this book, see what things you can rhyme while driving in the car, or while doing dishes.  Also, practice counting with your child. Here is a link to many activities from earlymoments.com Click here: 

As a fun snack, make your own fish bowl!

What you need: 
Blue colored Jell-O (berry blue or something similar)
Sweedish Fish

Basically, make the jell-o in clear containers and once it has set, have your kids count how many fish they can get in the fish bowl!
