Open this bold, animal-shaped Pictureback and plunge into the world of sharks. Kids will be fascinated by all the information–from the many different kinds of sharks (over 300!) to what some sharks have been known to eat (a suit of armor!). Parents will appreciate the simple text that is exciting without being too scary.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4 Details of sharks' specialized physiology are presented in a clearly written and easy-to-understand text, from the ampullae of Lorenzini (sense organs which can detect the electricity generated by every living creature); their incredible sense of smell (two-thirds of the shark brain is devoted to this sense); to their teeth, jaws, and specialized skin covering. Twenty major types of sharks are singled out for a slightly more individualized treatment, and one shark, the megamouth, discovered in 1976, is introduced. The color illustrations appear on every page of this large format book to amplify the text. They are artistic natural drawings in the finest sense, even to such whimsical details as one lone tennis shoe floating past an interested tiger shark. Frances E. Millhouser, Arlington County Department of Libraries, Va.
