In the Scholastic Discover More series, Sharks takes us all over the world's waters to learn about the large family of sharks. I will admit that I am not a huge fan of sharks but even I was impressed by these amazing animals.

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.
Good Points
An amazing reference guide for young, independent readers.
