How can fish live in water? Why don’t they drown? The answer to this fishy question and more can be found in this latest addition to the Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. The book clearly explains how a fish’s body is perfectly suited to life underwater, just as our bodies are suited for life on land.

In this Let's-Read-and-Find-Out" science book, children are introduced to fish. The shape of the fish's body, its hard scales and slimy coating all make swimming through the water easier. Fish "breath" water and extract oxygen, and big fish eat little fish. These and other basic fish facts are clearly explained with illustrations that contain pictures of common aquarium fish. Pfeffer closes with information about creating your own fishbowl habitat.
