Amazing Sharks!, written by Sarah L. Thomson is a level 2 book in the I Can Read series. According to the guide, level 2 consists of "engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play for developing readers." The books real photography is not only engaging, but beautiful. The text introduces an early reader to several different types of sharks, including the Great White, the Whale Shark, and the Cookie-cutter Shark. It also introduces some new vocabulary for young readers, such as predator, prey, and electricity. New vocabulary is followed with a phonetic spelling to help the child sound out the word. In addition to the previous, the book reminds the reader that sharks are important to our oceans and that people must help to protect them. All in all, I found this book interesting, not a wow, but my children enjoyed listening and looking at the pictures. I would recommend to parents or teachers who are working with early readers.

This is an all you need to know book about sharks. I found it very informative, and I even learned things I was not aware of. What I liked about this was that it introduced vocabulary words to students, and it gave the correct pronunciation. I would read this book out loud if I was doing a science lesson on sharks or during story time. This is also a great book for children to read on their own for daily reading homework.

This book has been a good challenge for my 6 y/o to read and she's enjoyed learning about the different sharks.
