Summer time is here! Time to splash and swim in the great ocean waters is here! And time to be aware of some of the most awesome creatures on the planet – Sharks. Shark week 2016 is officially beginning Sunday June 26th. But let’s begin a countdown now learning about these JAWsome creatures. Then watch everywhere beginning June 26th for more JAWsome information

Sterling Publishing (Sterling Children’s Books) has a book  that hit the shelves in early June 2016 that is beautifully illustrated showing these JAWsome creatures. Matt Weiss is using his wonderful talent to bring us fascinating facts about the Ocean’s Most Misunderstood Creatures.
Now let’s dive deep to see just why we should Be Nice To Sharks

Typically we think of sharks as these stealthy grey & white monsters with horrendous teeth that lurk in the waters preying on people. But as the author points out that it isn’t true (p. 3) and that they are being over-fished for collecting fins and for sport. Shark fin soup is considered a delicacy and 70 million sharks killed yearly for this food. Weiss reports that almost all the sharks in the oceans are gone and they could become extinct.
