What Do You Say?



Mandy Stanley has a simply fun book in this question-answer format.  It has so much going for it:  sparse prose, bright pictures, predictable answers, and the surprise at the last page.  What do you say to a fish anyways?  We always make the fishy face by squeezing in our cheeks, but you can ask the final question and poll the answers.  Don’t flip to the last page until everyone has given an idea, and then laugh at Mandy’s simple answer.
