A healthy ocean is home to many different kinds of animals. They can be
big, like a whale,
tiny, like a shrimp,
and even scary, like a shark.

Even though sharks can be scary, we need them to keep the oceans healthy. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, many shark species are in danger of extinction, and that can cause big problems in the oceans and even on land.

What would happen if this continued and sharks disappeared completely?

Artist Lily Williams explores how the disappearance would affect other animals across the whole planet in this clever book about the importance of keeping sharks, and our oceans, healthy.

This is a great book for shark lovers of all ages! Great illustrations, lots of complex ecosystems broken down so they are easy to understand!

The illustrations in this one are epic! I loved this simple yet informative this fun picture book! An estimated 100 million sharks are killed every year, but they are so important to our ecosystem. For young/sensitive children, note that there are a few illustrations of "scary" sharks.

Learn about shark's role in the ecosystem. Maybe they won't be so scary, then.
