Product description

A comprehensive modern reference book all about sharks for confident readers. 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 focussing 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.
