My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Best shark book EVER! My kid is a shark nut and we checked out 15 or more books from the library about sharks, but nothing comes close to how awesome this book is!!! The pictures are beyond amazing and the facts are so fun to read! This book includes eight chapters; Spectacular Sharks, Exploring Shark Anatomy, The Secret Lives of Sharks, The Fintastic Fin, Shark Myths Busted, Colossal Fossils, Super Sharks and Be A Shark Defender!! My kids and I have spent hours paging through and reading about all about sharks. We are shark fans, so getting this book is like being a kid on Christmas! 5 stars. A MUST read for those who love sharks!!
