I tend not to review a lot of children's book, however, this particular one warranted a complete review. As a former biology major and research scientist, I can say that this book presents a lot of good, accurate and interesting facts about sharks and isn't just fluff. It also has a glossary of terms and presents the content in imaginative and engaging ways.

For a time, I was a director of education and I understand that there are different types of learners, this book appeals to them all using text, puzzles, mazes, crosswords and other ways to present and reinforce concepts. However, it is in no way sterile or devoid of fun. In other words, it's not like a highly structured book that would be put together by an adult who doesn't have a lot of experience with kids.

This book will be FUN and EDUCATIONAL. The folks who put this together hand kids in mind and they did a wonderful job of targeting to the 9-12 age group. You can buy this for about $6.00 new and as low as $0.29 cents used. At either price, this is a bargain and will return hours of fun and education. I also like how it supports raising consciousness around these animals that for the most part endangered and about the environment in general.

My 7 year old son has been a shark fanatic for as long as he's known about them. He has put together quite an extensive collection of books and other shark treasures, this book has become one of his favorites. Since the day he received it, it has been sitting on his nightstand, within close reach. I see him reading and looking through this book more than any of the others that he has on sharks. He loves to come up with another 'hey did you know' fact to share, that he has learned from this book. Unlike some others that remain in near pristine condition; this one is dog eared, bent and shows all signs of being a loved book.

Inside you will find many fast facts, puzzles, mazes, riddles and the like mixed with a treasury of information about the beloved shark as a species. This has been a great book for both long and short reads, as you don't have to sit and do the cover to cover traditional read that sometimes becomes daunting to the younger bunch. Each chapter/section is somewhat short yet chock full of great child friendly illustrations, shark and habitat facts and short games/puzzles.

If you have a shark fan or a child interested in learning a bit about different undersea critters, this may be a good choice for you. I know there are tons of shark books out there to choose from but if you talk to my 7yr old son, he would tell you that this is one of the best!!

I got this for a 10-year-old's birthday and he loves it! This was a great present - educational and entertaining, and most importantly - not related to anything electronic. Growing up part of the Internet Generation, he spends a considerable amount of time watching television, playing video games/game boy, etc. and it is always a challenge to find him a present that he will enjoy but that won't encourage more hours spent staring at a plasma screen. It wasn't Star Wars; it wasn't Iron Man; it wasn't Pokemon; but he is enjoying it immensely. I would definitely recommend this book for someone looking for a more educational yet still entertaining gift for a youngster.
