Shark Books :: Book Sharing Monday

Celeste has been fascinated by sharks for over a year now and we have checked out several books from the library. There are many we could share with you, but for today we will limit ourselves. My son also was intrigued by sharks when he was a little younger, and still finds them very interesting. 

Celeste's choice today is Fly Guy Presents: Sharks by Tedd Arnold. Check out all the Fly Guy books at the Scholastic Parent Guide to Fly Guy.  

We noticed this small book at the library last week. She had read other stories with Fly Guy before, but we had never seen a non-fiction title with this fun guy! The book is filled with interesting facts and great photos of many different types of sharks.

"Sharks have super senses. That makes them great hunters. A shark can hear its prey moving underwater! It can even hear a fish's muscles moving as it swims." 

A favourite of both Andre and Celeste is the Usborne Discovery Internet-Linked Sharks. We have had this book for years. This title is filled with information and we have used the internet links during our shark unit study. All the links are updated regularly, so even though our book is from 2000, we can still use it. 

One more favourite shark resource that our family loves is the Usborne Fact Cards Sharks. I know it isn't a book, but I wanted to share it with you in case you also had a shark enthusiast! 

These are filled with more facts about 49 different sharks. The illustrations are detailed and we like the size comparison with a man at the bottom right corner of each card. On the back of each shark card you will find interesting information and essential facts, such as where to find it, habitat, prey, sizes, extinction risk, and more.
