One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Meaning

What is this book really about?

A person's a person, no matter how small. Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted.

Wise words, right? So it's no wonder they came straight from Seuss's mouth… or pen.

Sure, this is a mission statement for Seuss's writing, but it could also be the thesis for One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. It may seem like a simple book of rhymes, but it's also about having wonder and delight—in anything and everything, no matter how strange, offbeat, or wacky.
