    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 ...

    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 to...

    As someone who has an irrational fear of sharks, this book was both illuminating and challenging. I learned so much more about sharks than I could have imagined, and found myself challenged to think about sharks with perhaps more information and less fear. The graphic/comic layout was ...

    This graphic novel goes into different types or sharks and their enviornments. It was facinating and the illistrations really help. This is a fantastic book for middle or high schoolers. It uses a lot of the academic language and has great information in it. This would be a great text ...

    First Second Publishing's tagline is Great Graphic Novels for Every Reader, and their science series lives up to hype. Sharks: Nature's Perfect Hunter, set to be published April 2018, is worth the pre-order. The target audience is grades 4-8, but adults will learn something new about s...

    I wasn't really thrilled to be picking up this book because the subject didn't really interest me. But this turned out to be more fascinating than I thought it would be. And I love the focus on trying to save them because of their bad reputation. ...

    This was an interesting book. It is a fact book about sharks in the style of a comic book- no photos all drawings. Personally as a teacher, I prefer the traditional fact-file style book as they are clear and useful when teaching children new genres. However, I can imagine certain child...

    A great book for children (and adults). ?Science Comics: Sharks? is a well written and illustrated non-fiction book. The use of a comic strip makes it different to other non-fiction books and instantly children in my class want to read it. It?s the first time my class and...

    My 9 yr old son loved this one. While I'm a story person, he enjoys non-fiction, learning about whatever catches his interest. Sharks is one of those thing. He keeps it in the car so he can look at it when we're going places. ...
