There is no one at playschool who has seen more than Mr. Bubbles, Huron Playschool's resident goldfish for almost fifteen years. He's watched hundreds of children come and go, and has helped many of them settle into our classroom and become comfortable in this new setting. In his easy, swimmy way, Mr. Bubbles gives our little people a sense of responsibiiity as they help care for a creature smaller than themselves, and provides a calming presence for the group.
Goldfish in the News:
- Mr. Hot Wing, a Pennsylvanian goldfish with a deformed jaw, was recently fitting with orthodontia
- the Iranian president shows his support for the rights of Mr. Bubbles' brethren
- Norwegian police seeking owner of lost goldfish
- Apparently children have lower attention spans than goldfish do. (Having met the meditative Mr. Bubbles though, this really doesn't surprise us.)
