This is a book that is about different kinds of sharks, what they look like, what they eat, and more. Some pages may be a little busy for students to read along because there is so much written on each page.

I really liked this book for several reasons. I liked how the book began as it asked the reader thought-provoking questions such as “What’s the one word that turns your dream into a nightmare?” or even “What’s the one word that makes you think of a giant man-eating killer?”. The author could’ve chose to start off the book with blocks of informational text, but they chose to intermingle questions such as these with informative information throughout the book that made it interesting to the reader. I also really liked the illustrations throughout the book as they were brightly colored and drawn in a cartoon style. For example, the pictures of the sharks and surrounding fish on page 18 were colored in hues of pink, yellows, and blues with various stripes and spots that distinguished the from the rest. Each shark illustrated had its name below it along with a short description of characteristics of that species. The language used throughout the book was very simple and easy to understand for all reader, and the information was simplified and shortened into as small as one or two sentences. I also really liked the choice of font the author used since it would change into bold or bubble letters for words they wanted to emphasize to the reader. For example, on page 20 the author wrote “Sharks’ senses are fine-tuned, ready for the tiniest hint that might mean food!”, but bolded the word food to emphasize how well a shark’s senses are.
This book is a great informational book that informs the reader of all the different sharks that exist in the ocean besides just the stereotypical “great white” shark. The book has great usage of metaphors and similes, like when the author described Lantern and Swell shark as “hav[ing] built in fairy lights or blow up like a party balloon”. The main message the author wants the reader to gain through reading this story is to inform them of different kinds of sharks, shark behavior, and shark anatomy in a very fun and engaging way. ( )

This book uses a story-book approach to teach children about sharks.

The main idea of this book is to explain and describe types of sharks, shark anatomy, shark behavior, and shark conservation.

The pictures are illustrations rather than photographs, and show the differences in the types of sharks. This is interesting, as this is an informational text. The anatomy diagrams are to scale, but other than that, the illustrations are unrealistic. They are, however, eye-catching and colorful. ( )

It is a information books and there are all kinds of sharks details described in the book.Interesting facts, lots of different types of sharks. Information books are nonfiction and present current and accurate knowledge about sth found in our universe. The book tells us not all the sharks are scary and some are very cute at its appearance.
The illustrations are fun and beautiful.
To teachers, it is a good book that can attract kids eyes on the book and it is easy to introduce sharks to kids by the well done pictures pages.
To studenets, it is a good information book for them to learn something about sharks and science. ( )

The main purpose of the book is to inform readers of different types of sharks that exist, rather than just the great white shark that everyone is scared of. I love the authors writing style approach to this book, rather than just stating facts about sharks, the author is sure to include funny comparisons through simile and metaphors. For example, when discussing a Lantern and Swell shark the author is sure to capture the reader’s attention by saying “who would expect sharks to have built in fairy lights or blow up like a party balloon.” This comparison is much more relatable than just simply saying what a Swell and Lantern shark is. I also loved how the author incorporated small facts underneath the pictures of different types of sharks and labeling the different parts of a shark. For example, the author included an illustration or diagram of a shark and labeled each part of it: “skin, dorsal fin, pelvic fin, and tail.” Rather than just saying what a shark has, the author showed the reader through illustration.
