Slippery Fish

Slippery Fish


Author: Charlotte Diamond | Illustrator: John Aardema | Board Book

Almost every preschooler in Hawaii learns the song Slippery Fish (or Octopus) written by Charlotte Diamond. The song is taught to kids along with hand motions, and parents throughout the islands know how to sing this song. Now, in board book format, is an illustrated version especially for Hawaii's kids.

Each page glows with vibrant fish and sea creatures found in Hawaii's waters providing a subtle yet colorful backdrop for the main characters in the story: the slippery fish, octopus, tuna fish, great white shark, and humungous whale.

If you're not familiar with the song, just ask the closest 3 or 4 year old and they'll sing it for you.
