    I'm so excited!

    I just can't hide it!

    We're going to the AQUARIUM this weekend!!!

    The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas down here in New Orleans to be exact.

    Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

    I am even more excited because when we go we will be taking along our "field trip in a book" called The Complete Aquarium Adventure by Merilee & Bill Clifton.

    What a cool and complete book this is!

    It is arranged in a tabbed format so that it is divided in sections for "Before the Aquarium", "At the Aquarium", and "After the Aquarium." Additionally there are tabs within the "At the Aquarium" section for various Sea Animals and Birds and other Sea Creatures that you will see at the aquarium. Each section has vibrant photos and brief, concise, but thorough content to read about the specific topic of the section. The coolest thing to me, of course, is that the content is Bible-based and helps me to teach the Truth about these creatures regarding how they were intentionally designed and created by God - not just a product of random, unplanned evolution void of a Creator.

    And finally, after its "Appendix" tab, The Complete Aquarium Adventure has inside its back cover a special "Tool Kit" resembling a treasure chest. And treasures truly are to be found on the inside! I think second only to the content this tool kit is my favorite part of this book. It has several special cards in it designed for using at the aquarium as games to play along the way. One set is for playing a special form of BINGO in which you mark off each space as you find its creature somewhere in the aquarium. Another game in the Tool Kit is an alphabet-based game in which you write the name of the creature you find at the aquarium if its name begins with the specific letter of the alphabet on the line you still need to fill in.

    One tiny critique just to keep it real is that the little pieces of velcro used to close my little Tool Kit will not stay on. The glue that holds them onto their respective cardstock paper portions had loosened itself by the time the book got to me in the mail. (I DO live in HOT, HUMID Louisiana, by the way...go figure! Guess all glue is not made to withstand our wonderful temperatures. No biggie to me.)

    Anyway, as you can tell, I do love this book and highly recommend it. They even have a similar one for zoo animals called The Complete Zoo Adventure by Dr. Gary & Mary M. Parker.

    Disclaimer: I received this book for free from New Leaf Publishing Group. No other compensation was received. The fact that I received a complimentary product does not guarantee a favorable review.

    this was like going to an aquarium in our living room. not only are the photos great but the description and information on each page is awesome. there are games for kids to play after their trip and then cards to take with them inside the aquarium that have facts on them as well. i would recommend this book to folks with kids and even grand parents who want to take the kids to an aquarium. get reading! you'll love it.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Bill & Merilee Clifton
Located in: Longwood, FL
Submitted: March 27, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  We have a Creation ministry in central Florida teaching science from a creation perspective to groups of homeschoolers and offering "Creation Adventures" to homeschool families and Christian schools. Bill was head of SeaWorld Orlando's Education Department before going to seminary. Then, he served on church staff and was head of the science and Bible departments at a Christian school before we started "Science Partners" in 2000.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Our motivation behind writing "The Complete Aquarium Adventure" was to honor God as our Creator and to point people to Him by helping them discover some of the incredible animals of the sea.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  We hope that people will be able to use our book as a tool to have an exciting adventure to an aquarium, the beach, a marine-life park - or even a "field trip" at home! It has a "Before the Aquarium" section (including devotions) to help prepare for your trip; an "At the Aquarium" section with info from a creationist perspective on over 30 animals seen at aquariums; and an "After the Aquarium" section with reproducible follow up activities for all ages, as well as a "Tool Kit" (with animal fact cards, Ocean Zone cards, and games) that comes out so you can take it with you!

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  In researching this book, we visited many state aquariums as well as marine-life parks. We were constantly awestruck at the amazing handiwork of our Creator!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  We are inspired by the magnificent works of our Creator! Every animal, every leaf, every rock tell of his creativity and power.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  We were science editors for "The Aquarium Guide" (published by Answers in Genesis) and have edited articles for Answers magazine. We have both been trained and certified by the University of Florida as Florida Master Naturalists. We have also been trained by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as facilitators for Project WILD, Project WILD Aquatic, Florida Black Bear, and Flying WILD programs.
