I wish I were a mermaid
So I could swim beneath the sea
And bring a moonfish home
To meet my mermaid family!

A moonfish (also called an opah) is a large, flat-bodied fish found in warm ocean 
waters. A moonfish can grow quite large, weighing up to 200 pounds. 

Bonus activity: Print a picture of a moonfish from the internet and let children pass it 
around.
