4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive March 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This little book has a lot of information in it and will make learning about sharks fun for a younger audience. I was particularly impressed that the author included some detailed information on the Gray Carpet Shark as the species is rarely discussed. There are quite a few pictures in this book that are very clear and of high quality. I enjoyed sharing the text with my children as it wasn't too difficult for them to read and they were able to learn from what they read. I also liked that the author didn't talk down to her audience, but still wrote it with the non-scientist in mind. Often the trouble I have with books about marine life that are intended for children is that my kids stumble over the scientific names of the animals. This book was much more enjoyable to them and to me. If you have a child that is interested in marine life or sharks, this will be a good book for them to learn a bit more about the creatures they love. I would say this book would be ideal for ages 6-10, but older or younger children might still enjoy it as well.

Me and K both loved the facts about sharks. But some of the facts to me were a bit like umm what? For example a certain shark or two could possibly eat garbage. Now I am not saying this isn't true but I have never read something like this before in other shark books. Also the author would say the shark babies are called pups okay no problem that is true. But then would go back and forth with repeating pups and babies it just got too repetitive.

I also thought the author could have added other pictures instead of just one per page. Even though you get a lot of detail on the different sharks there could have been a bit more pictures to entertain as well.

We did learn about new sharks that we have not heard of before. Also we both were impressed with how bit sharks could get makes you just want to stay out of the water.

Good for kids that enjoy reading about sharks and learning new facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guess what has up to 300 teeth! April 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great book for kids from 5 to 75 to read and learn about sharks, for example, did you know that the Great White Shark can grow up to 23 feet (7 m), weigh up to 7000 lbs (over 3 tons) AND have over 300 teeth!

Most sharks give birth to live babies called pups, but some sharks lay eggs!

The book covers 24 types of shark.
