Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
Part of a many-volume shark set, this book does a fine job of explaining nurse sharks to very young readers in only 148 words. The nocturnal fish rests all day and has finger-like barbells on its snout to feel for food on sandy ocean bottoms. Pups—twenty to thirty of them—are born all at once (pups are born after hatching from eggs housed inside of the mother's body, but the book does not mention these details). The book, packed with up-close photos, goes on to feature what nurse sharks look like and how big they are as compared to humans. Their sharp teeth are made for chomping on crabs, fish, and snails that live in the sand. This volume includes a simple glossary, index, and lists of related books and appropriate internet sites. Consulting editor is Gail Saunders-Smith, Ph.D., and consultant is Jody Rake a member of the Southwest Marine/Aquatic Educators' Association. After all these facts, I have one question: why are they called nurse sharks? Reviewer: Judy Crowder
