On Our Shelves Now
A fascinating three-dimensional presentation provides the reader with an in-depth, hands-on exploration of a great white shark.
In Explore a Shark, a detailed three-dimensional format gives the reader a hands-on exploration of the most feared predator of the seas--the great white shark. This unique "model" can be deconstructed and rebuilt layer by layer, system by system, just by turning the page, so the reader can see how each part of the shark's body is connected to the others. By combining a 3-D model with informative text and illustrations, Explore a Shark helps children understand how sharks have come to rule the world's oceans.
