Your kids will love learning more about tropical fish with this colorful, engaging ocean life picture book by Tam Warner Minton.
Quite often we hear about the benefits of using living books to teach history . . . but did you know that there are living books that teach science, too?
An informative, engaging living science book is often the best way to teach elementary science. Living books draw readers in, immersing them in a specific topic and sparking an interest in learning more.
I was recently introduced to a new living science book about tropical reef fish, and I’m excited to share it with you today! I promise you, this one is worth adding to your homeschool library.

Ocean Life Picture Book for Kids
All Fish Faces: Photos & Fun Facts About Tropical Reef Fish is a kid-friendly book about tropical fish. With gorgeous underwater photos and a conversational style, this picture book is the ideal way to introduce your child to ocean life.
The author, Tam Warner Minton, is a scuba diver and photographer who draws young learners into marine life through her pictures of fish faces.
Each photo is labeled with the name of the fish and the location where it was photographed. Interesting facts and fun tidbits are sprinkled throughout the book, making it a real learning experience.
For example, did you know that most species of parrotfish can change genders multiple times in their lives? Or that a pufferfish contains enough poison to kill 30 people?
We learned that—and so much more—from All Fish Faces.
My 6-year-old daughter, Kiera, absolutely loves this book. In fact, we read through the entire book in one sitting! She especially enjoyed learning about the differences between mammals and fish in a way that she could understand.
My 9-year-old was listening in and commented, “She [the author] is really lucky to have actually seen all these things!”
I love that we are all learning together using this educational book for kids. I know we will be pulling it off the shelf many times in the future so we can learn more about tropical fish.
