I’ve had a number of kids interested in shark books – everything from picture books (for those who frighten easily) to nonfiction titles that show rows of teeth and talk about sharks as apex predators and an important part of the ecosystem. So while everyone watches Michael Phelps race a Great White Shark, here are some awesome books to share together!

  1. Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld
  2. Gilbert the Great by Jane Clarke, illustrated by Charles Fuge
  3. Nugget and Fang: Friends Forever–or Snack Time? by Tammi Sauer, illustrated by Michael Slack
  4. The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark by Ken Geist, illustrated by Julia Gorton
  5. I’m a Shark by Bob Shea
  6. Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean’s Most Fearless Scientist by Jess Keating, illustrated by Marta Álvarez Miguéns
  7. Sharks! by Anne Schreiber
  8. Fly Guy Presents: Sharks by Tedd Arnold
  9. Magic Tree House #53: Merlin Missions, Shadow of the Shark by Mary Pope Osborne
  10. I Survived: The Shark Attacks of 1916 by Lauren Tarshis

And a bonus title:
