LoveReading View on Could a Shark Do Gymnastics?

This bright, attractive looking book takes a quirky approach to natural history. Colourful artwork and higgledy-piggledy type create outlandish scenarios to explore animal characteristics. Children will love the absurdity of questions such as ‘Could a shark do gymnastics?’ Or ‘What if a shark went to the dentist?’, but the answers are surprisingly informative, and memorable too. It turns out that sharks’ strong, bendy bodies are perfect for gymnastics – they can leap more than 2.5 metres, higher than any human. There’s a more conventional fact file at the end too, complete with smiling cartoon shark, pointer in hand! See the partner volume too Could a Whale Swim to the Moon?    ~ Andrea Reece

Could a Shark Do Gymnastics? Synopsis

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a shark went to your school? What If a Shark Could Do Gymnastics? provides a fun and engaging introduction into the life of a great white shark. By imagining animals in everyday scenarios readers can learn about their size, diet and other features. For example, what if a shark went to the dentist? He would be there a long time. A great white shark has nearly 240 teeth! Featuring superb illustrations with an engaging question and answer format, this series will keep young readers entertained and help them to understand and retain animal facts.

Following on from the popular What if a Dino series, QED is publishing four new titles on ocean animals:

Could a Shark do Gymnastics?

Could a Whale Swim to the Moon?

Could a Penguin Ride a Bike?

Could an Octopus Climb a Skyscraper?
