What if a great white shark comes along for a short visit? How would he cope among humans?
The fun idea offers a hugely entertaining way to learn a lot of interesting facts about the animal. To teach children, that the shark weights about 4.500 pounds, is one thing, but if you tell them, that if you were to play with the animal on a seesaw you would need nearly 100 children to balance him, that's what they will remember. It's a visual image which stucks.
Or that a shark would easily eat at a barbeque nearly 5.000 saugages in one meal and after that he wouldn't need to eat again for two weeks, is another excellent example how to teach kids nature facts the fun way.

A fact file at the end of the book provides a world map, where children can see the locations where the great white sharks live around the globe.
And finally my personal highlight. The very last page is a postcard, showing a photo of the real animal and the shark sending the young reader greetings, now being already back home in his natural habitat and the card offering a short summary of the book's facts.

The cheerful and colourful illustrations tie in beautifully and together with the big print, which is very suitable for young readers, they round the whole thing off to a perfect book for libraries, schools and parents to teach young children animal facts and to help them to retain them.
Highly recommended. ( )
