In this latest installment of the Cat in the Hat's Learning Library, the Cat introduces beginning readers to all kinds of sharks! From the smallest (the dwarf lantern) to the largest (the whale shark), the most notorius (the great white) to the most obscure (the goblin), the Cat explains why sharks have lots of teeth but no bones; how their tough skin helps them swim fast and stay clean (inspiring scientists--and bathing suit manufacturers!); how pores along the sides of their bodies help them sense prey; that they have more to fear from us than we do from them, and much, much more! Perfect for shark and Cat (in the Hat) fanciers, fans of the new PBS Kids preschool science show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! will sink their teeth into this new addition to the series!

Rhyming is terrible, very feeble attempt at copying Suess’ writing style and fails horribly. Reading it to my 4 year old, often would make up rhymes that fit better. Further, the book is long in the tooth about things that kids just won’t understands. A section on skin grafts? Are you serious? Then the whole enviro-radical message at the end with dead shark pictures, hacked up fins and shark soup (how do you make that rhyme). Try explaining dead sharks hanging on hooks to a 4 year old. Totally unnecessary. I give it 2 stars as there is some valuable info about different sharks but this is NOT Suess.
What idiot chose to put pictures of dead sharks and dismembered shark fins in a book for kids who like sharks?
What an amazing and in depth look at all the different kinds of sharks, as well as the features they all have in common. While this is written in the fun style of Dr. Seuss, it is much more informative and educational. This book will be enjoyed for years in our home.

Great book as always! Side note: I love how this book doesn’t sugar coat what is really happening to the sharks and our current ecosystem. Kids (and adults) need to know the true story and this book simply puts it out there! Save our oceans! Stop shark fin soup. So Dumb...I can’t stand what is happening to the sharks and all species of the sea. I could go on and on. But this book really is a great informative read.

As a teacher and a mom, I love this book! it has a good message about sharks and has many educational facts in the traditional rhyming style known to be used in the Cat in the Hat series. I also bought the Baby Aspen Four-Piece Gift Set (shark towel,slippers and bath puppet) with this book!
What an Excellent Read! This book has so much information about sharks, yet it is within keeping of the other Cat in the Hat books. I even learned things I didn't know. This book was the 2017 Book of the Year and I stumbled on the article and purchased it on Amazon. My nephew loves his "Hark the Shark" book and my brother has to read it over and over every evening.
My 5 year old is really interested in sharks and LOVES this book. It's informative, fun and a quick read. I was impressed that it covered many species of sharks (great white, hammerhead, nurse, shyshark, mako, wobbegong and more!). It also has a section about how sharks are born and how to think about making choices to save them from extinction. We've had this book for 2 months and my son asks that we read it every night. This is a must for any kid interested in sharks!
Awesome! Informative and in a super fun way. Both my 6 year old and almost 4 year old love it! No hesitation. Just buy it. But it is a bit longer than you might expect. Start earlier at bedtime than later!
