Animal Helpers: Aquariums - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Where else could you stay dry while visiting aquatic animals from around the world? Only in an aquarium can you visit and learn about all these different local and exotic animals. Aquarium staff care for and teach about these animals, as well as work to conserve and protect threatened and endangered species. Follow this behind-the-scenes photographic journal as it leads you into the wondrous world of aquariums and the animal helpers who work there.

My Review:

I've only visited a couple aquariums in my lifetime and they fascinate me. I liked being able to see animals on a more intimate level. Animal Helpers: Aquariums is a book with realistic photos that show what an aquarium is, what animals and fish are kept there, and what kind of people work there. Each creature in the book has a tagline so children can identify the animals. The 'For Creative' Minds section in the back of the book has a 'Match the Animal' that lets children match the animal to the description. It also details aquarium jobs, has animal fun facts, and a true or false query.

Animal Helpers: Aquariums is a Spring 2014 release by Arbordale Publishing.

Win It!

One person will win a book copy of Animal Helpers: Aquariums.
