Sharks live in oceans around the world and come in many different shapes and sizes. This simple animal-themed picture book focuses on the differences found in various shark species. Some sharks are shy and some are fierce, some sharks are camouflaged and others literally shine in the dark, etc. Only a small number of sharks are actually highlighted, but the wide variety of sharks is made apparent.
I really liked this book for its clear message and bold illustrations. We are already big shark fans at my house, and the kids very much enjoyed this book. This is not a book that will give you any deep information about sharks, but is a great introductory book that creates more questions for young readers to then explore. This will be a big hit with animal lovers and shark lovers in particular.
