Shark Lady is an essential book about sharks for kids!
Learning about sharks: Eugenie Clark fell in love with sharks from the first moment she saw them at the aquarium. She couldn't imagine anything more exciting than studying these graceful creatures. But Eugenie quickly discovered that many people believed sharks to be ugly and scary―and they didn't think women should be scientists.
Sharks are beautiful: Determined to prove them wrong, Eugenie devoted her life to learning about sharks. Like Jack and the Beanstalk but under the sea, Eugenie dove down to discover a world of wonder beneath the water's surface. She earned the name Shark Lady with her many discoveries about these beautiful creatures. Through her accomplishments, this star girl of the sea taught the world that sharks should be admired, not feared, and that women can do anything they set their minds to.
Book of sharks for kids: Parents and teachers will love this new addition to the genre of the Who Was? series, in the spirit of Manfish and The Girl Who Thought in Pictures. Shark Lady is perfect for children who love magical adventures like the Magic Tree House series, inspiring friendships like The Snail and the Whale, and stories about overcoming fears like Jabari Jumps.
