Gr 2-4–Gordon and Lynch use humor and science to teach readers about sharks. The text is filled with facts that describe physical features, diet, senses, intellect, common shark varieties, and geographic locations. For example, sharks do not have bones. Their skeletons are made of cartilage. To make the facts easy to follow, comparisons between humans and other creatures clarify a shark’s abilities. The silly jokes will appeal to children and help them understand the concepts. There is an abundance of data that will be useful in writing assignments and reports. A glossary, list of organizations that keep sharks safe, and further information are included. Source notes are not featured.
VERDICT This solid resource is useful for children who need a little humor to help absorb the science.
