Kyle, age (almost) 3
"I like the shark! He's really big and he's got sharp teeth."
Colton, age 5 and Macie, age 3

"I like Dory [the main character in the Disney film Finding Nemo]. She's a clownfish."
Lauren, age 9
"The jellyfsh because I like the way they look and how some of them can change colors."
