Scholastic Discover More: SharksFeatured
Every kid likes being freaked out watching a great white shark attack, but this book exposes the reality: that sharks are incredible creatures and we are just beginning to understand their complex lives. Collection spreads featuring hundreds of sharks open chapters focusing on specific shark families. Thorough, up-to-date information is combined with cutting-edge facts about sharks’ amazing memories, shark no-go zones, and cleaners and clingers-on: fish that travel with and attend sharks. The book encourages an active response: sharks are endangered and here’s what you can do about it. Fantastic photos, structured layouts, and age-appropriate vocabulary entice newly confident readers into the world of information books. Data boxes, maps, and stats encourage related numeracy and science skills. Vetted by literacy experts.
Like other books in this series, Sharks has an abundance of information that will have kids excited and turning the pages just as quick as they can. My own 6 year old grabbed this book out of the box immediately and started talking about how cool all of the sharks were.
This is a great non-fiction book for your home or classroom.
