Synopsis: From School Library Journal: Tongue-in-cheek headings, descriptive text, and art with a retro color palette make this an alternative take on the typical shark book. As fun to read as it is informative, this title covers the diet, hunting techniques, social life, size, and biology of eight orders of sharks. Consider this amusing and edifying work for displays and artsy kids who also happen to like sharks.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you donít have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
