    1 thought on “The Birthday Fish

    1. I love this book, because almost anyone can relate to asking for a particular gift and receiving something else.

    2. The Birthday Fish by Dan Yaccarino tells of Cynthia, who always asks for a pony What will she do the year she gets a goldfish for her birthday Yaccarino s illustrations show many details while mainly focusing on Cynthia and the goldfish My favorite images are rockinghorse, holding package, goldfish, pet store, and sunset.This is an interesting combination of realism and magic Most children have wished for something they never got, or that was unrealistic The talking fish is clever The fish looks [...]

    3. I enjoy a book where the author and illustrator is one in the same Then I know the story and the drawings will match seamlessly, as they do in this book The story is a simple one, and so are the drawings, but they do not fail to get the point across Sometimes what we really want is what we already have Having a niece who has wanted a horse since she was old enough to express the desire, I understood how disappointed Cynthia was to receive, not a pony, but a goldfish, for her birthday As I read t [...]

    4. Cynthia wishes for a pony each year on her birthday She is convinced that this birthday she will finally receive her pony, but instead, she receives a fish She starts to pour the fish down the sink, but he promises to grant her wish if she will set him free She carefully takes him to the lake and the two watch the sunset together Cynthia gives him the name she had been saving for her pony and takes him home.This book would be appropriate to share as a read aloud with children between two and fiv [...]

    5. Not sure how to interpret this one A goldfish is forced to plead for its life with the little girl who is about to put it down the garbage disposal because he isn t the pony she asked for He tells her that he s a magical goldfish who will grant her two wishes if she releases him in the lake So they walk the whole day to get to the lake and she decides she s not going to set him free She s not going to put him in the disposal either She s gonna keep him in that little bowl wondering each day if i [...]

    6. I tried to use this very simple picture book as a jumping off point for discussing with my six year old the necessity of adjusting one s expectations and dealing with disappointment healthfully It didn t work A little girl wants a pony so when she gets a fish she goes directly and eerily calmly to dump it down the drain The fish begs to be let go in wild waters instead so he can have his freedom The girl agrees, but on the way over falls in love with the fish and decides to enslave him forever T [...]

    7. Cynthia wants a pony than anything She has wanted a pony for a very long time Instead of a pony she gets a goldfish Which would be bitterly disappointing except that Cynthia s goldfish can talk How cool is that But despite the magical qualities of the goldfish, Cynthia still pines for a pony I won t spoil the story by saying what happens but I will say that sometimes the things we have or get are actually better than the things that we think that we want Right, Cynthia

    8. I read this story years ago but recently read it again and I have to say I still love it Cynthia loved ponies so much that she asked for one for her birthday Instead, she receives a gold fish and is going to flush it down the toilet until the clever fish talks her into taking him to the lake to free him Cynthia takes care of and protects the gold fish along the way and by the time they reach the lake they have formed a friendship The illustrations are fun and bright.

    9. A simple story about a little girl who has always wanted a pony what little fantasy girl hasn t, right She s asked for one on every occasion, but has never gotten a pony Then, on her birthday, she receives a manageable pet a fish The fish is also magical and can talk, and promises the girl her wish if she takes him to the lake and set him free On the journey to the lake, though, the girl and fish bond Illustrations are cartoon like.

    10. Kids made lots of predictions when reading this book including that the cat would eat the fish or the dog would also eat the fish They were caught off guard that she loved her new pet fish and called him Marigold, even though he was not a pony.

    11. The little girl wants a pony for her birthday, which she will name Marigold But, when she recieves a goldfish, her disappointment is clear The Birthday Fish is clever, however, and endears himself to her Used for Fish A Mania storytime July, 2010.

    12. A sweet book about a girl who can t wait till her birthday But when it comes, she gets something she wasn t expecting This book is something all children can relate to, because they all have a birthday.

    13. This book is adorable My three year old students loved it It has great illustrations It is about a child who does not get the birthday gift that she really wanted and how she learns to cope with the situation Most kids can relate as well as adults It is funny as well.

    14. 3.75 stars Sweet and funny story about a girl learning to love her pet goldfish, even though it isn t a pony.

    15. Read this in conjunction for Read for the Record 2015 It was a great book to use for making predictions and text to text connections The kids in K 1 loved this book too bad it s out of print.

    16. About a little girl who wishes for a pony but only gets other things Finally she gets a fish but doesn t want it, fish talks and they end up being just fine with the way things are.

    17. Used this book for orange theme The kids really enjoyed it and I might be able to use it for mature lap sitters too.

    18. Birthdays are very special to children Every child has a wish list of things they want for their birthday But what happens when you get something that you are not expecting

    19. Sweet book about a girl that just cannot get that one special gift that she wants Great story about not always getting what you want, but what counts is what you do with what you do get.

    20. I think every child has wanted something for their birthday they haven t recieved This book shows you sometimes the wierdest thing can surprise you.

    21. It s an interesting concept to help children deal with reality vs But I want it and responsible pet ownership, but the ending is a little jarring and I think kids will feel it as well.
