Science expert Sandra Markle's introduction to baby sharks provides rare glimpses of these creatures at their most vulnerable and will captivate young fans of nature's toughest creatures. Even before they're born, baby sharks have to be tough to survive. Some that grow inside their mothers compete with their womb-mates for food, space, and their very lives. Others have to escape as soon as their mothers give birth to avoid becoming her tasty snack. If they survive those rough beginnings, baby sharks then have to figure out how to make it in an ocean teeming with predators.

Markle leaves the reader with a tease about the possibility of cloning mammoths, and encourages young science enthusiasts to go out and solve their mysteries. Solid science and a good but challenging read. Just when you think there is nothing more to be said about woolly mammoths, Markle finds a way to present information in a fresh new way. Here she compares the preserved remains of woolly mammoths and modern elephants, showing similarities and differences in ears, coats, feet, teeth and diet. Throughout, she asks intriguing scientific questions while investigating the extinction of these ponderous mammals.

A classic for elementary school children of all ages. Increases reading awareness, fluency, basic decoding and reading comprehension. A great insight into the world of sharks!

This book focuses on the anatomy of sharks, the inside and the outside, hence the title.

Clear explanations of the anatomy of the sharks are given, fully understandable to my 6 year old. An example of what is thoroughly explained is how they get oxygen from the water, how the gills operate, and how the plankton eaters filter the plankton from the ocean. There are also interesting comparisons between fish and sharks, highlighting how they are different from one another.
The text is detailed and the writing style not dumbed-down or patronizing, which I appreciate. There are many full color photographs, some of which are downright gruesome! The cross-section of the heart and the cut-open stomach showing partially chewed-up contents was a bit much.
This was a great part of our homeschooling unit on sharks. It is very thorough regarding the anatomy of sharks. To get a broader overview of sharks, additional reading is required.

As you know from my other reviews, I'm the chief rib tickler and bedtime book reader for two boys, a 5-year old and a 4-year old.

Boys like books with scary things that aren't *too* scary.

Boys like gross things, like a shark's liver (page 10), a shark's ear (page 17), and a shark's lower intestines (page 27).

This is a great learning book. Yes, it is gross, but the pictures are nothing more graphic than what you'd find in natural science magazines.
