Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Illustrated with full-page, full-color photographs, this highly readable title explains basic facts of shark life and elaborates on the diversity of different species. Clear comparisons are made with real-life objects; readers learn that some sharks are so small that they can be held in the palm of the hand while others are longer than a pickup truck. Concepts and new vocabulary are explained in context with a pronunciation guide for harder words in parentheses. Common misconceptions are also considered: humans are more likely to be hit by lightning than killed by a shark. A discussion of the need to protect the animals' habitat includes the fact that people have killed more than half of all the sharks in the world.–Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. With dramatic photographs provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society, this I Can Read book includes more than the usual deliciously shivery shark-attack stories. There are also some fascinating facts about how sharks use their senses and how they find their prey. The short sentences are clear and informative, and photos, including a few close-ups, contrast the blue-green of the ocean habitat with the brown of the polluted shallow waters where people dump oil and trash. Kids will want to talk about the role of predators in nature and the need to stop hunting sharks and polluting their nurseries; the picture of a shark caught in a net helps reinforce the conservation message.

I purchased several books at one time for my emergent reader son, who is 4 years old. This was his favorite. He loved the pictures and could begin to read some of the words as well. This is an excellent way to introduce young children to non-fiction books.

Okay, I cannot figure out why I bothered to buy this book in the first place. Despite the fact that I live in Utah and have not spent a heck of a lot of time near the ocean, I have a weird fear of sharks.But guess what? Plenty of other people find them plenty cool! And as I read this introductory text to the amazing world of sharks I found myself grudgingly appreciating their incredible diversity and ability to survive. Truly they are very cool animals and while I will never love them I did appreciate what this book taught. And that means great text, lots of incredible, beautiful, and terrifying photos, and neat, did-you-know style facts.Shark lovers will love this quick read and those delighting in information will also get something out of it.

This is my 5-year old's second favorite book about sharks; he has two. It has good information and pictures of sharks and takes about 10 minutes to read. I'm beginning to think I'll never get to read anything else again but shark books. He loves them.

Format: Paperback
I really like this book because it's interesting and they're one of my favorite animals.

My opinion of this book is I like it because they're cool to learn about.

This book is mainly about different kinds of sharks. Would you like to find out about the biggest shark in the world? Then you might want to read Amazing Sharks.

This book is more on my grandson's level. He is almost 3, and the illustrations and information were more simple and concise than other books that I purchased on this subject. This will definitely be a book that he will be able to read by himself in a few years.
