By D. Blankenship HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on December 13, 2006
Format: Library Binding
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 bought this for my daughter to read. She has several of these reader books and enjoys them. I think this is her favorite by far because she loves to study sharks ever since there were two local shark attacks this past summer. Most of her other readers are fiction. She enjoyed learning more about sharks and I like the fact she is getting practice reading. It has great pictures and lots of info. We both enjoyed it and will continue to read it!!!

My son is currently 6 years old and in 1st grade. He was able to read 98% of this book on his own (a little easier than expected). He was very interested in this book and it did a good job breaking down the point without going into too much depth which would take away his interest.

Perfect book for my 3rd grader to read and pull information for a small writing prompt about sharks. They needed 3 sources and we used this as one. Great info & easy to read. Also interested my 2 younger boys which was an added bonus.

I love these series. But most important that my son does. I order 20+ books and he loves to read them (usually it is not that easy to make him read). I got mix of 2-3-4 levels for the second grader, second level is too easy, but it creates some fun and he reads them with pleasure. Love it, I would recommend it.

Well researched non-fiction book for grades 2+. The information goes well beyond basics and really speaks to kids who are looking to broaden their knowledge of sharks. Illustrations and diagrams are great practice in how to read non-fiction text. I'd recommend the Step into Reading series for emergent and independent readers alike.

sting's than from shark bites!
