 Why I Like The Book


If you're planning a road trip to Legoland's Sea Life Aquarium or any aquarium in the near future, then you'll want to read this fantastic unofficial guide book. What a wonderful introduction to the magical world of so many beautiful sea creatures, along with 40+ stunning photographs to see marine life up close. It all begins with a curious Bear named BJ, believing he could walk right inside the place and be invisible. Chuckling to himself because no one could see him, here's a list of some of the fish BJ saw and that our grandchildren like:

Pajama Cardinal Fish
White Sturgeon
Moon Jelly
Porcupine Puffer Fish
Giant Pacific Oysters
Sea Anemone
Giant Spined Stars
Giant Spider Crab
Cow Nose Rays
Horseshoe Crabs

What I liked most about the book is that it is so engaging for the children and their families. This moves the story line forward with many educational fun facts to explore. For example, we learned that the White Sturgeon can live to be 100 years old, and an Octopus has 3 hearts, blue blood and can change the color and texture of its skin. My favorite line in discovering this very interesting place that houses many colorful sea life is, "That fish smiled at me!" Get the book and truly see if a Giant Spined Star looks like a plump cookie sprinkled with sugar! This is a great book, very informative and I recommend to friends.

5/5 stars!

We've been to Legoland but since I live in SoCal and have read the book, I plan on taking my grandchildren to this aquarium!
