The Not So Merry Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Another purchase at the 2015 Scholastic Book Fair at my school. My students love the Pout Pout Fish stories so I was happy to find a Christmas story, especially one with an excellent message. I've added Orff instruments, but once we put it on the instruments, we usually add some non-pitched percussion for sound effects. I usually let my students decide what sound they like to hear with the music, or to portray characters or actions.
