Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
The "Amazing Animal Series" offers early readers a look at the animal kingdom. Each title focuses on a particular animal, and provides information about what they eat, their habitat, enemies, and family life. There are six titles in this series. Great white sharks are large and dangerous. They have five different kinds of fins that help them swim and keep their balance. Their bones are made of cartilage, which means they bend easily. This allows them to turn quickly when they swim, helping them be fierce hunters. They have electronically sensitive organs in their heads that allow them to sense prey from long distances. Great white sharks breathe through gills on the sides of their body, just behind their heads. Their livers are very large, allowing them to store energy in the form of oil. They can go without food for up to two months. They live in coastal waters all over the world and migrate to warm waters to give birth to their pups. This book is nicely illustrated with numerous photographs.
