Featuring top notch photos of sharks and dolphins, this guide will answer some rudimentary questions youngsters may have about these two marine creatures. Despite similarities, there are obviously some major differences between a shark and a dolphin.

The book's simple text not only points out these differences but also four activity pages allow the reader to apply some of the information he/she has learned while reading this book.

Since this isn't intended to be a detailed study, I'd use this book to launch a discussion of the differences not only between sharks and dolphins but also other animals, plants and birds.

Teachers and home schooling families will find this inexpensive volume a good way to introduce a natural history or marine biology unit. Or simply leave the book out and let the child discover it and satisfy his or her own curiosity.
