One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish is a classic in the Dr. Seuss world. This book is great for all ages because it highlights creativity and, like many of Seuss' books, shows that a little nonsense can be a good thing. This book can be used with many different units It focuses on opposites, counting, colors, descriptive language... there are so many different opportunities. Of course, I would use this in a Dr. Seuss unit. I would use this book for grades K - 2. The Guided Reading level is K and the Lexile level is 180L.

Summary: Gwen’s life has been a roller coaster since she discovered she was the Ruby, the final member of the time-traveling Circle of Twelve. When not searching through history for the other time travelers and asking for a bit of their blood (gross!), she’s been trying to figure out what all the mysteries and prophecies surrounding the Circle really mean. It’s not easy when a secret society, a dangerous Count, and her own time-traveling partner, Gideon, are determined to keep her from the truth. Especially since Gwen can’t decide whether Gideon really believes she’s a traitor to the Circle or might actually be on her side - and creeping into her heart. -Square Fish, 2010.
BB Dalton by Cat Johnson is a quick read, perfect for those with limited time for reading. Ms Johnson has delivered a well written book. The characters are fun and lovable. BB Dalton is made up of bits of drama, humor and spice. I enjoyed reading BB Dalton and look forward to reading more from Cat Johnson in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, this story is a fun read from the one and only dr. Seuss. I would use this in my classroom to help students learn about rhyming. Like most of dr. Seuss's books the story is full of Rimes. I would use this book in kindergarten, 1st, or 2nd grade, and I would definitely have it in my lineup to read during read Across America week, AKA dr. Seuss's birthday.
