This book is very good for teaching kids about the ocean. I bought this to start my daughter off on the right foot about conservation. It is a very easy beginning book for young children.
“Shark Baby” is a cute book about a shark trying to figure out who he is. He sees other animals of the sea and asks if he is one of them. The story is cute. I don’t particularly like the use of “Mother Ocean” in the story but that is a personal preference for me. The pictures are delightful and would keep the attention of young children. The illustrator uses lots of lively colors with lots of detail. I especially like the large character on each page that jumps out and catches your interest. The teacher help pages are very good in this book and give added information about the ocean animals as well as questions for teachers to use to increase interest and knowledge.
