I have to admit that when we began reading DJ Corchin’s Do You Speak Fish?, I didn’t care for the book. The main character is rude and rather selfish. However, as the book progressed, it turned itself around, sharing a lovely narrative of learning about those who are different and working to communicate with others in their own way. I still won’t say that this is one of our favorites, but I was pleased with the message provided in the book. This would be good for early elementary classrooms.
