A healthy ocean is home to many different kinds of animals. They can be big, like a whale,
tiny, like a shrimp,
and even scary, like a shark.
Even though sharks can be scary, we need them to keep the oceans healthy. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, many shark species are in danger of extinction, and that can cause big problems in the oceans and even on land.
What would happen if this continued and sharks disappeared completely?
Artist Lily Williams explores how the disappearance would affect other animals across the whole planet in this clever book about the importance of keeping sharks, and our oceans, healthy.

If all the sharks disappeared in the world, life as we know it, would cease to exist. It’s the circle of life inside this children’s nonfiction book and I enjoyed how Lily Williams told this story. Beginning with how important sharks are to our environment, to their evolution over the years, sharks are important, no matter how scary they are. On the top of the food chain, sharks help create a balance in our world and without that balance, our world would become unstable and even us humans, would be affected. Beginning in the water, this devastating event would affect many inhabitants on land, water and air. Great illustrations accompany this education text. A book that shows how one event can have a rippling effect. I picked up this novel because Shark Week is coming up.
This adorably illustrated book takes a look at what would happen if sharks were to disappear. Told in a kid-friendly manner, Williams explores how the loss of one animal could be disastrous to the entire planet. The back matter includes a glossary, author's note, and list of suggested ways children can help save sharks. Young environmentalists and shark enthusiasts alike will enjoy this book.
