Sophie and Max Show Some Shark Love - Children's book series book 2
Learning about sharks!
Sophie and Max embark on a beautiful shipwreck dive to help them learn more about sharks, but Max has a secret—he is afraid of sharks!
Will facing his fears help him to overcome the panic he feels at the thought of coming face-to-face with these toothy fish?
Together, the two friends meet three species of sharks on their adventure, falling in love with these beautiful animals at first sight. They learn why sharks are so important to the ocean, how they keep our reefs healthy, and why we need to help sharks now more than ever as they become endangered through over-fishing.
We love sharks!
Book includes 3 double-page info-graphic spreads about the species of sharks the children encounter on their dive.
Review on back cover by Cristina Zenato:
"Sophie and Max lead us on a small adventure full of helpful teaching moments without taking away from the fun and joy of the narrative.
The wonderfully illustrated story teaches children that sharks are not dangerous to humans and need to learn more to protect them better. The drawings carry a beautiful sense of happiness about them, and they made me smile from the moment I opened the cover. The book is informative yet concise enough to keep the children’s attention while providing a generous amount of information about sharks, which is rare in a shark storybook.
I love that the author (or Jill?) speaks to children as adults; children have the ability to understand and process. We need to trust their power and know that when they learn young, they will never forget and take it with them for the rest of their lives."
