Meet different sharks from around the world in this rhyming board book.

Did you know that some sharks have friends? Or that there are some sharks bigger than trucks, while others are smaller than ducks? There are sharks who can walk on land and others who play hide-and-seek in the sand.

Shark expert and enthusiast Mark Leiren-Young's rhyming couplets are paired with striking photographs of many different kinds of sharks, introducing little ones to the wonder and variety of this often misunderstood fish.

“Very engaging…Short but very deserving to be added to the family or library bookshelf. Leiren-Young starts toddler readers on the path of respecting and admiring the sharks who inhabit the world’s oceans. Highly Recommended.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“So compelling that even non-shark lovers will find themselves gazing at the well-composed and vivid photos. This will be a book that will be requested often!...A good choice for a library needing nonfiction books for the young.”
– School Library Journal
“Fact-filled…Stunning information is sure to entertain and fascinate young readers, engaging the attention, curiosity, and imagination.”
– Children's Literature

“A welcome primer on the wonderful world of sharks that will have small swimmers fascinated by these fish rather than fearful of them.”
