Fun little story to teach your children about sea life.
Reviewed in the United States on July 18, 2017
Excellent little story for your little ones to read before visiting an aquarium or sea park. Little Critter and his classmates take a field trip to the aquarium to learn about sea life. The visuals are all very well done just like all the other Mercer Mayer stories. The kids see all the fish and normal attractions you would find at most aquariums. It is a nice little story and our daughter gets excited when we pick it out to read. Although I have never heard of a restaurant that sells a "swordfish burger" sounds intriguing. Our favorite part of the story is when Little Critter is daydreaming about snorkeling in the sea and finding a real octopus out in the wild.
The bright colorful illustrations make it easy for our daughter to follow the story and stay focused.
We bought this story book along with the Berenstain Bears at the Aquarium. To show our 5 year old daughter what she would see at Sea World on our vacation. Both books are around the same price and tell the same story. I always liked the animation in the Mercer Mayer stories a little more than the Berenstain Bears. You might want to check both books out at your local library before purchasing the one you like best.
If you are trying to teach your little guys about fish this is a nice book to star with. I would rate it 4 stars.
