Blog Tour: "Please Be Nice to Sharks" Children's Book #Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 7/21 #Sharks #BeNiceToSharks @SterlingBooks

Shark Week might be over, but you can still learn more about sharks and teach your children more about them too!

Please Be Nice to Sharks (Sterling Children’s Books) by Matt Weiss, a humorous book that humanizes sharks through breathtaking underwater photography and incredible facts.

Meet 14 cool sharks (and one manta ray) and see why it's important to BE NICE TO SHARKS! Though they’re often portrayed as vicious man-eaters, sharks actually kill fewer than 10 people per year. Yet those myths cause real harm: many species are being hunted to extinction, with as many as 100-200 million sharks being killed each year. This humorous book humanizes the incredible shark through breathtaking, original, underwater photography along with incredible facts about these amazing creatures in the wild—sending kids a crucial message about conservation in an irresistible format.

My Review:
My children and I like the "Please Be Nice to Sharks" book. They enjoyed watching some of the Shark Week shows, as some of them were a little too violent for them to see, as they are only eight, six and four years old. We learned that the Lemon Shark has five rows of teeth! Bamboo Sharks are one of the smallest sharks on earth and they only swim when they feel threatened. Whale Sharks have no teeth at all and they can grow to be larger than a yellow school bus! My kids thought this was cool, but I don't. Whale Sharks are huge! This book has been a great teaching tool to help my children learn more about sharks! Now they want to know more, and so do I!

  1. No, I didn't watch any shark week episodes. Honestly, I've had so much going on that I forgot about it!

  2. I did watch shows during shark week. It is a tradition.

  3. We have watched Shark Week programs before. We did not watch them recently.

  4. We watched all week, they have very educational programing and the after dark talk show was fun. We watch every year and really look forward to all the hype.

  5. We only have Netflix, so whatever they have about sharks is all we get to see!

  6. Yes we watch the Shark Week shows and we also follow a place that tracks sharks where they are at and follows their journeys.

  7. No we didn'the since we got busy but my son loves sharks.

  8. No I haven't, I didn't even know there was such a thing as shark week! I agree it seems ridiculous to hunt sharks to extinction when they aren't that harmful.
