In the ocean, sharks are near the top of the food chain. Sharks have the same five senses as humans do, but they have an extra sixth sense that makes them especially deadly hunters. What is this sense and how does a shark use all six senses to track down prey? Read and find out! With colorful illustrations from Bob Barner and engaging text from John F. Waters, Sharks Have Six Senses is a fascinating look into one of the most powerful predators in the sea.
Featuring rich marine-biology vocabulary bolded throughout the text, this book also includes a Find Out More section with additional shark facts and web research prompts about shark conservation efforts. Both the text and the artwork were vetted for accuracy by Dr. George H. Burgess, director of the Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-And-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
