Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 01/01/2006 K-Gr 2-Illustrated with full-page, full-color photographs, this highly readable title explains basic facts of shark life and elaborates on the diversity of different species. Clear comparisons are made with real-life objects; readers learn that some sharks are so small that they can be held in the palm of the hand while others are longer than a pickup truck. Concepts and new vocabulary are explained in context with a pronunciation guide for harder words in parentheses. Common misconceptions are also considered: humans are more likely to be hit by lightning than killed by a shark. A discussion of the need to protect the animals' habitat includes the fact that "people have killed more than half of all the sharks in the world."-Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information. - Copyright 2006 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
