I love the amazing photos in Sharkopedia . I've never seen that many great shark pictures ever, let alone in one book. I have been learning about sea creatures since I was a kid on the west coast, so I was surprised that even I learned a lot from this book. It's definitely a book with broad age appeal. My 4 year old son loved seeing the picture and hearing about the different types of sharks, but I can also see it being valuable to a much older student for a report in biology class, or just for fun! My favorite feature was actually the appendix that listed what sharks are in which aquariums and zoos.
I like the scary sharks [great whites]! They look like ghosts! The pictures are so fun and scary!
The bottom line
Sharkopedia is a well done book I highly recommend to families who love animals and science. It'd be a great addition to any home or classroom library.
