Our Family loves all The Berenstain Bears books And normaly we give 4 stars, however I could not over look a huge mistake in this book. Typically they do a great job of educating your children but they goofed this time. They show a Killer Whale & a bottle nose looking dolphin In The same tank. Would never happen! They both have way different temps of there pool water, not to mention a killer whale would try to attack a dolphin like that. No way these two would ever perform a show together. I ...more

More boring than a real aquarium.

Meh. Very boring story. It's just badly written. I was kind of hoping that Brother and Sister wouldn't get what they wanted at the end, like the attraction was closed or something, and they would have to deal with the fact that other animals are also cool. These kids are just a frigging pain. They're not very likable. I don't really have much to say about it. It basically says that nothing in the aquarium is interesting except the main show. That's what the kids

Huh, and I thought Little Critter: Going to the Sea Park was a field trip in a book. This Level 1 I can Read! Berenstain Bears early reader is spot on with my thoughts and memories of an aquarium/water-life park. Learn about different fish and ocean creatures. Find facts about them and encourage discussion and conversation. This is a fabulous family style early reader.

*Thanks to HarperCollins Children's for providing a copy for review.*

Though it was a bit odd to see "Honey Bear", since she didn't exist in this series when I was a child, this was actually a decent story. However, it lacked any true depth. It is one of those stories that didn't offer some moral. Instead, it is a simple adventure in which the family takes a trip to the aquarium. It does a good job displaying some of the things young children can expect to see if they should visit an aquarium.

This is a level 1 book with repetitive words within the story, but not written where it's boring. It's also fun to learn about the various fish and things that live in the ocean as the bear family goes to the aquarium...even explaining what an aquarium is when Sister asks. Nice beginning book for children to learn by

A little bit longer for an early reader level 1 than most level one books. Still a good read for those young readers to build up reading confidence and fluency. Lots of colorful pictures to help the reader figure out some of the more challenging words. So many wonderful sea creatures to see at the Aquarium the Berenstain Bears have a hard time deciding what to look at first.

A tale from a different age, though my child greatly enjoyed it and its pictures. The bears take a trip to the aquarium where they see creatures of all sorts who live in and around the water. Featuring the highlights of their journey and a whale/dolphin show this book is a great addition to a classic library.

This was a cute book about the aquarium. It talked about all the cool animals and in the pictures exaggerated others. students would like this book because they either can relate or would want to learn more about the animals. I love the Bernstain Bears and all their books because I can always relate to them.

I didn't feel The Berenstain Bears at the Aquarium had enough substance to grab a young reader's attention. The sentences are repetitive in a way that makes what is being said vague and difficult to follow.

Don't waste your time, Jan and Mike Berenstain have completely ruined the series.
