Kindergarten-Grade 3?Goldfish are the focus of this overview; several other fish are illustrated and labeled, but without supporting text or size comparisons. Facts about physiology are explained in an elementary manner. The author compares piscine and human breathing, states the function and structure of scales, discusses feeding habits and blood temperature, and provides other basic information. Step-by-step instructions for setting up a goldfish bowl are included. The pen-and-ink, watercolor, and pastel illustrations are adequate. A useful addition to a subject area that has a paucity of material on this level.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

Gr. 1^-3, younger for reading aloud. How pet goldfish feed, breathe, swim, and rest in water is the focus of this lively Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book. Large, clear, labeled pictures in pen-and-ink, watercolor, and pastel and a simple, informative text explain how scales and slime keep fish healthy, how their sleek shapes help them swim, what it means to be cold-blooded, etc. There's some general information at the beginning about fish in lakes and ponds, and one double-page spread shows them in the sea, but the focus is on caring for a pet goldfish. The final instructions for setting up a goldfish bowl are straightforward and practical. The book design is open and inviting, and Keller's brilliantly colored fish swim through pages washed in aquatic blue and green. Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

We have an aquarium nearby, and after reading this book my three year old began appreciating the fish as complex animals instead of glancing at them as he ran by to the next tank.
