If your youngster can't get enough of Shark Week on television, this book will satisfy his or her desire for more information about these marine creatures that date back to prehistoric times. There are more than 500 different kinds of sharks and they range from the size of a kitten to behemoths that are as long as a bus and weigh as much as two elephants.

This fascinating little book provides an introduction to some of the more common species of sharks. Transparent flip pages along with interesting facts and tidbits about sharks make this a captivating volume and one the young reader will return to again and again.

Most sharks offer no threat to humans and are actually quite harmless but, as we all know, there are a few exceptions. The reader will learn not only about the shark's anatomy but also what it looks for at meal time and how it procreates.

Whether you purchase this to add to your shark library or plan to use it as a general introduction to sharks, you'll discover that it is an excellent reference book and one the entire family will find interesting.
