Jaw-some information about the lords of the deep
Here’s a great book for young shark aficianados, full of facts, figures and neatly presented information. Written by experts Duncan Brake and Jillian Morris, founder of Sharks4Kids, it introduces fourteen different types of shark, from everyone’s favourite (surely?) the great white, to lesser known but equally extraordinary creatures such as the swell shark, which can glow in the dark, and the cookie cutter shark, with its jutting teeth. Mixing illustration with photos and making good use of fact boxes, the book also emphasises the importance of conservation, setting up young people to be successful advocates for these endlessly fascinating creatures.
Sharks featured— Tiger, Great Hammerhead, Great White, Nurse, Bull, Greenland, Swell, Cookiecutter, Sand Tiger, Prickly Dogfish, Goblin, Sawfish, Shortfin Mako, Pelagic Thresher.
We all know about the Great White, but did you know about the shark that can glow in the dark? Or the one that can trump to lose buoyancy? Full of photographs, scientific diagrams and illustrations, Shark Super Powers is the perfect guide for any shark fanatic.
Dive right in with marine biologists Jillian and Duncan as they take you into the depths of the ocean. There you'll discover all sorts of weird and wonderful sharks you perhaps didn't know existed.
Learn all about these amazing creatures and their extraordinary super powers.
Jillian, founder of Sharks4Kids, and Emmy nominated Duncan live in Bimini where their passion for shark conservation takes them into schools and communities across the US.
