Chomp! Happy Shark Week!

4 Aug

Honestly, I’ve never actually watched any of the gore/mayhem that comes with Shark Week. But then I only  got cable a couple of years ago, and it was basic BASIC cable. But, in honor of the phenomenon, here are some great shark books to share during the commercials.

  • Shea, Bob. I’m a Shark!Shark is pretty proud of his scary-making

    Shark says "hey!"

    skills. But don’t tell him if a spider’s nearby.

  • Geist, Ken. The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark. Will shark chomp through the house made of seaweed? You betcha. The house made of coral? Of course. But the sunken ship house? Hmmm…
  • Peck, Jan. Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea. The kids joined in on the “swim away” refrain. Lots of sea creatures, but the shark really gets noticed!
  • Schwarz, Viviane. Shark and Lobster’s Amazing Undersea Adventure. Not really a storytime share, because of the cartoon-panel illustrations, but super funny and a good one-on-one book. What scares shark? Besides spiders, I mean. Tigers, of course!
  • Barton, Chris. Shark vs. Train. A picture-book version of “anything you can do, I can do better.” But really, they’re both good at stuff.
  • Arnosky, Jim. Gobble It Up! a fun song about eating. What would you eat if you were a shark? It may seem gross to you, but if you were a shark, well, you’d gobble it up! (Also includes whales, raccoons, pandas, and others…).

What are your sharkey favorites, for storytime or otherwise? We’ll eat ’em up!
