This is not a bad beginning reader and it is full of very fascintating information about sharks and shark life. The illustrations are quite good and of course hold the children's interest from cover to cover. The text is simple and quite easy to follow and understand. I can see why there might be some concerns over portions of the book. Yes, the book dose address the fact that sharks, for the most part, are preditors and I can see why the illustrations might upset some (although I feel it will probably the adults rather than the children who will be upset. Kids are so pragmatic these days about such things). I also have to agree to parts of the one negative review this book received in that I too felt the author was being a bit cavalier as to the probability of the survival of sharks all over the world. As the reviewer pointed out, this is one animal that is quickly getting into trouble in a big way. Perhaps I would have liked to have seen a bit more on the necessity of keeping these wonderful creatures with us. Overall though, I find the book to be quite useful and as I pointed out, the kids all love it.

From a second grader's point of view: I really liked this book. This book is a non-fiction book that teaches you about sharks. It tells you what they eat, their habits, and what kinds of sharks there are. It tells you specifically about sandsharks, great white sharks, basking sharks, and thresher sharks, among others.

I like't the book. I did't know that more people die from bee
sting's than from shark bites!

This is an excellent book for the budding oceanographer (or the beginning reader). It realistically shows the shark as predator (some of the pictures show sea animals being eaten by sharks, but the illustrations will probably not be upsetting for most), and as victim of the smarter, more teamwork-oriented dolphins. The book does a great job of reporting interesting shark facts; for example, there are more than 300 types of sharks, the dwarf shark is no bigger than a hand, a barrel of nails was once found in a shark's belly, etc. 47 pages long, the publisher recommends it for readers in grades 1-3. A good beginner book.

A Kid's Review on January 20, 2003
Format: Paperback
The book Hungry Hungry Sharks by Joanna Cole is a good book if you like sharks and you want to find out what they eat or how they live. This would be the book that you would want to read to find those things plus you can find lots more about sharks than what I listed above.

My son, a college sophomore these days, made me read this book to him so many times when he was little that I can still recite some of it by heart. Beyond the wonderful illustrations and fascinating facts about sharks, this book has a very playful way with language that immediately captures a young reader�s attention. If you have any little oceanographers at home, or even if you are simply trying to get some wiggling, non-scientific, prodigies to calm down and get ready for bed, by all means, pick this one up. Your kids will love you for it.

Hungry, Hungry Sharks (Step-Into-Reading, Step 3)

This book is a little bit dated and doesn't include new information learned about sharks. It says they can't stop swimming or they will sink. I think this has been dis-proven. It also doesn't address the problem of sharks being killed for their fin or because people don't like them and how they are becoming endangered. None of that info is in the book. In fact is says they have been here since dinosaur time and they will always be here.

But other than that it does have enough info for my 4 year old who loves to learn about animals. It has drawings instead of photos. It shows different types of sharks. The book touches on the subject of sharks attacking people without being gory. This book says all kinds of non food has been found inside sharks. Actual items found are MINK coat, treasure chest of jewels, suit of armor, barrel of nails. This is our favorite part.

This reader on sharks will be very entertaining for young readers. The large type will help children in their reading. While most pages have one to four short sentences, a few pages have as many as eight sentences. The book looks at the origin of sharks with dinosaurs, the various sizes of shark species, the pack hunting of blue sharks, and the dangers of the great white shark. There are a couple pages of illustrations of various types of shark with winning illustrations. Looking at the hammerhead shark, the author shows how some animals such as dolphins defend themselves from shark attacks. Finally, there is a bit on what items have been found in sharks, fishing for sharks, and the research around the habits of sharks. Patricia Wynne's bright and colorful illustrations will surely add to the entertainment of this didactic book.
