One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Theme of Exploration

Why did we go to the moon? We certainly weren't in it for the view (although that was a bonus). One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish is textual proof of the natural human urge to explore new territory, to see the unseen.The boy and girl in the book gallivant from here to there, urging the reader to partake in all sorts of zany adventures. All in all, the book is a romp that encourages the reader to take their imagination to new heights.
