Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rachel Miller
Sharks have been around longer than dinosaurs, and they live in every ocean. Sharks have cartilage which allows them to turn and move, as well as bumpy skin which protects them and helps them swim faster. Shark pups grow in eggs or in their mother's bodies. Each shark is different, depending on the breed. Pups are born in shallow water and stay there until they are old enough to swim deeper. Sharks have keen senses of smell and sight, which enable them to catch their prey. Like humans, sharks have many different types of teeth; unlike humans, they have many rows of teeth and their teeth grow back when they lose one. The photography in this factual book is realistic and complements the text nicely. The angles of the pictures are incredible and attention-getting. The reader will enjoy the jokes that appear at the top of some of the pages; these help to keeps the book entertaining. The vocabulary throughout is both age-appropriate and challenging at the same time. The reader is sure to learn something from this book. This is part of the "National Geographic Kids" series.
