Fishy Tales

Fishy Tales is a great children's introduction to tropical salt-water species.

A well done photographic sampling of salt water organisms is presented, with just enough explanation for very early readers.

Full Review

Fishy Tales provides photographed and labeled images of Gobis (shown in the cover image, think Finding Nemo), Filefish, Coral, Parrotfish, Sea Turtles, Sea Horses, Starfish, Jellyfish, Sharks, Octopi, Crabs, Rays, Dolphin, and Eels. The labels point out major anatomical features, using simple terms, such as “fin”, “eye” or “tail” —which is just the right level for pre-readers. An additional strip shows rather small images of related organisms.
