Grade 2-4-Each of these slim volumes has a page of text facing a full-color photograph. Baby Sharks provides a clear explanation of the three different kinds of embryo development found among sharks and describes how the young survive on their own from the time of birth. Chasing Sharks and Killer Sharks, Killer People attempt to dispel the unwarranted fears people hold about potential attacks. They also introduce various products made from parts of sharks. What is mystifying is why these two books weren't combined into a single, more substantial volume. Shark Camouflage and Armor explores the topics identified in its title. The remaining two books offer brief introductions to various sharks and their relatives, information that can be found in many beginning books on the subject. There is a great deal of overlap among all of these titles. Most of the Web addresses are current, although locating the information relevant to sharks is not always straightforward. Libraries with other basic books about sharks may want to assess the need for additional resources on the subject. Most of the topics covered here can be found in Brett Westwood's Great White Shark (RSVP, 2000) and Susan Brocker's Sharks (Forest House, 1998).
