About the Book
Title: Please Be Nice To Sharks | Author: Mark Weiss | Photos by: Mark Weiss & Daniel Botelho | Publication Date: June 7, 2016 | Publisher: Sterling’s Children’s Books | Pages: 32 | Ages: 6 to 10
Book Description: Meet 14 cool sharks (and one manta ray) and see why it’s important to BE NICE TO SHARKS! Though they’re often portrayed as vicious man-eaters, sharks actually kill fewer than 10 people per year. Yet those myths cause real harm: many species are being hunted to extinction, with as many as 100-200 million sharks being killed each year.
