I picked this one up to prepare my 4 year old for his first visit to the aquarium. I'm not sure that either of us would be as into it if we didn't have the trip coming up, but we do so he's currently a fan.The book shows all the things you might see in an aquarium, like the kelp forest and a place where you can touch bat rays, while also including informational tidbits like the difference between saltwater and freshwater tanks. The illustrations are big and beautiful, and many of the full fish p...

I purchased this long ago, on my first trip to the Shedd. I purchased a new copy for my classroom library. Pictures are delightful... I wish the aquarium pictured was real! Recommended. Q2020 book
I felt like we visited the aquarium! I love the pictures.
Fun way to learn about aquatic life
When we borrowed this book from the library, little did I know that we would be visiting the wonderful Aquarium of the Pacific a few days later. The book was a great opportunity to discuss that trip and revisit the things we saw. It's informative and fun and has pretty illustrations that give you a good idea of what to expect at the aquarium. There are pictures of tropical coral reef displays, penguin pool, anchovies tank. The image of the giant kelp forest reminded us of the big Blue Cavern w...
Take this book to the aquarium with you and look for the fish identified by Aliki. It's a great book to use educationally as a scavenger hunt to match the colorful images with the actual fish in the aquarium whether it is a free-swimming aquarium or one with the fish seperated into different tanks so they can be seen better. Or use the book to inspire your children to set up their own aquarium at home. Aquariums are also stress busters and calming retreats at the end of a hectic day. Enjoy My Vi...
Science Literature Grade 3 Topic: Sea life/AnimalWonderful Picture!! I would read this book in the middle of a sea life lesson. Read before possibly going on a trip to the aquarium as a class. Have students find there favorite fish or other sea life and have them draw/paint or any type of art project to make the fish.
This is a great book for a lesson on ecosystems, habitats, and sea creatures. It takes place in an aquarium so it lends itself well into a field trip to the aquarium to see all of the sea animals in the book actually in person.Recommended grade level: P-5
If you can't get to a real aquarium, this is the next best thing!If you are planning to go to an aquarium, read this with your child!It tells all about an aquarium and labels the fish. Interesting stuff.
It was pretty good. A little in depth for my two year old, but very informative. He loved looking at the animal pics, and it did remind me that we need to plan a trip to the aquarium soon.
I've loved aquariums and fish as long as I can remember and it's pretty obvious why i loved this book as a kid and still do.
I love Aliki's illustrations. I love the ocean, so this book really appeals to me. I want to visit that aquarium!
