This shark book was just as good as the last one I read. I liked how this book gave you the actual image of the insides of a shark. This book tells you how fascinating these sharks really are. One crazy shark that I think that is pretty scary is the Goblin Shark. How its teeth are just sticking out just like that. It gives me the chills. I recommend this book to shark lovers, of course.I thought this book was really cool but I think I'll take a break from sharks for now.

OK I know these are supposed to be kid books but they are awesome! Great pictures and just enough text to make you want to learn more. Great choices for a beginning history reader or to start an older reader out in a new area. Every time I pick one of these up and read it I learn new things. Highly Recommended
