Young Reader Reaction

My daughter picked this book because she was curious about how many different kinds of sharks there were. Still, she she covered her eyes at first when looking at some of the pictures. She liked the pictures and how they showed the different ways the sharks are shaped. She also was very excited that there were so many different kinds of sharks.

Parent Reaction

I thought the book was very informative but not so overwhelming with facts that you were bored. Each shark was explained with just the right amount of details so you understood it.
