I loved it for the rhyme, the characters, the central theme of feelings, and the humor. Your kids will love it too!
My kids need extra visual supports and extension activities to supplement mainstream books, so I have developed some and listed on TPT for a modest price.
Here's the description:
This is an literacy/activity companion pack to the book, “The Pout-Pout Fish”. The Pout-Pout Fish book is not included—you will need to get that separately. This pack meant for the more linguistically challenged students and is perfect for speech/OT or speech/special ed collaboration. This is nice for integrating literacy and hand-on activities. You are purchasing visuals and questions for the “Pout-Pout Fish”, an interactive book and a craftivity with an assortment of visual supports for all. Most clipart by Smarty Symbols copyright 2016.

I looked on YouTube (which seems to have everything) and discovered this book is set to music in two distinct styles---rap and folk! Check them out with your students! Take a vote--which did they like best?
