Off you will go for a fun boat ride following the super fast mako sharks around the ocean! Children will learn how a team of marine biologists tag sharks and then follow them with a robot. You’ll have fun following the team as they head out in their boat!

Lori Haskins Houran’ story is a pleasure to read with it’s rhyming text. The illustrations by Francisca Marquez are colorful, friendly and not scary at all. My little guy enjoyed the full spreads of imagery and followed along well for a 7 month

Really great informational book for young readers. Simple narrative but is still interesting and covers what young kids would want to know. Great title too!

I liked the back matter a lot but the rhyming verse didn't quite work for me.
