Book Review - Scholastic Discover More: Sharks
About the Book
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.
My Take on the Book
If your child likes to learn about sea animals and in particular sharks, then this a great book to purchase and share with them. It will provide hours of reading enjoyment. The book is chock full of fabulous photographs, information, and 260 stickers to use on the pages.
Did you know that a tiger shark will eat anything, including dynamite? Did you know that a great white shark when they are sick will thrust its stomach out of its mouth and then pull it back in?
These are just a few of the hundreds of interesting facts in this book.
