Science Comics: Sharks: Nature's Perfect Hunter (Science Comics) Reviews
I’m a huge fan of the Science Comics series, they are fun and packed with information. I always learn something new from these books even though they are meant for kids! The subtle humor and easy to read format make these books great for reluctant readers and perfect for classrooms.
Sharks is full of fascinating information, it helps to dispell the idea that sharks are terrifying man-eating monsters (although the text still occasionally refers to them as monsters), but instead represents them as ...more
Science Comic: Sharks is a wonderfully entertaining and educational graphic novel style book depicting the ins, outs, hows, and whys of sharks of all kinds. The comic book format delivers a science lesson that easily engages the most reluctant reader, especially those who love ocean-life and sharks. It explores food, cells, senses, abilities, and teeth, and whole lot more. Don't forget all those teeth! One icky fact is that sharks can turn their stomach inside out! How's that for cool/gross? Sur ...more
This is another stellar book in the Science Comics series from First Second. Joe Flood is both the author and illustrator. From the opening note by Marine Conservation Biologist, Dr. David Shiffman, to the final frame of this graphic text, *Sharks: Nature’s Perfect Hunter* doesn’t shy away from focusing the reader’s attention on human responsibility in both the misunderstanding of sharks and the threats to their existence. With mentions of actual shark encounters, Hollywood’s influence, and mark ...more

Science Comics has a one-two punch in March and April, first with Robots & Drones, next with Sharks. Kids LOVE sharks. The introduction nails it with its opening line: "Lots of kids, including many of you who are reading this book, go through an 'I love sharks' phase." Shark books move off my shelves faster than just about any animal, tied only by dinosaurs (and we've already got a Science Comic on them), so this book should be going in your cart, sight unseen. But since that's not what I do ...more
I heard about Science Comics at a literacy conference and knew I wanted to check them out. I read the one on basts first and Sharks next. Bot h had so much interesting information. Sharks felt more like a science text. Tons of cool information, but not so much a story. The bat comic told a story of an injured bat whereas this was just a lot of really cool facts. I loved both bookss and can't wait to check out more.
Some fun things I learned.
1. Not all sharks are cold blooded
2. There used to be a ...more
