Pout-Pout Links

A few recent Pout-Pout links to pass along....

  • Earlier this summer Speech and Language Pathologist Sherry Y. Artemenko, M.A., C.C.C., included The Pout-Pout Fish in an article she wrote entitled "Cool Picks for Hot Summer Reading." The article is available on her site as well as at the Parents' Choice site. The article includes great tips on how to use picture books to encourage literacy skills. I also got a mention in her blog, in the context of how to encourage your child as an author. Sherry's site, blog, and articles are informative and useful. You should take a look!
  • I was extremely honored to have The Pout-Pout Fish reviewed in July by Dr. Sue Ann Martin of WCMU's The Dean's List. In conjunction with the review, I was also profiled on air by Susan McTaggart-Dennis, which was a great experience. The text of Dr. Martin's review is available at the The Dean's List site. There are also some great discussion questions for using The Pout-Pout Fish in a story time, classroom, or home setting. Head on over and take a look, as there are plenty of great book reviews and materials. You can even tune in via the Internet to listen to WCMU live.
  • Over at The Children's Book Review, Bianca Schulze has posted a review of The Pout-Pout Fish. Her site is chock full of reviews, so if you aren't a regular reader of it, you should head on over. She has also posted an interview with me, which was a lot of fun to do.
