SHARK STUFF

The first title in the new “Can’t Get enough” series from National Geographic Kids is sure to enthrall and entertain middle grade readers and even us adults. Perfect for summer reading or any other time of the year.

This is no boring repetition of what you already know about the shark world. The large size paperback is packed with colorful images and jaw dropping facts.

Across the more than 125 pages you will find multiple sections of:

  • FUN FACTS
  • SILLY JOKES
  • VIEWS FROM EXPERTS IN THE FIELD
  • FUN AND GAMES
  • TRY IT OUT AT HOME EXPERIMENTS
  • QUIZZES—One halfway through and another at the end. Plus more quizzes to find out where you might fit into the shark world.

Even a shark enthusiast like myself found a new understanding of these magnificent creatures:

  • Shark can see 10 times better than humans in dim light
  • The Viper Dogfish shark has the scariest and creepiest look of all the sharks
  • The Whale Shark is as long as an RV
  • Sharks often don’t feel pain
  • A Whale Shark’s mouth is five feet wide

An index and bibliography wrap things up and even if you are not a shark lover, you may become one after spending time with them on the pages of SHARK STUFF. A great escape for all!
