About this book

Imagine that you're standing on the banks of a river fishing with your family, when suddenly, you see a grey fin poking up through the surface of the water! While this sounds impossible, it does happen. We usually think of sharks as strictly ocean creatures, but nothing could be further from the truth.

In this book, you'll learn about how some sharks are able to live in freshwater instead of saltwater, what freshwater sharks eat, where they live, and which types are aggressive towards humans. You'll also learn what to do in the event that you're caught in a freshwater shark attack. Dive in and learn more – if you dare!

Every book in The Amazing World of Sharks is full of fascinating information about where and how sharks live. From the well-known great white shark to the hardly seen goblin shark, this series will take you on a journey deep into the ocean's depths where you'll learn about different shark species and how they can be protected. Each title in this series includes colour photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through these content-rich non-fiction books.

Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions – building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content-rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in sports' history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
