A Shiver of Sharks by Little Bahalia Publishing
Description"A Shiver of Sharks" is the delightful ocean SEA-quel to the critically-acclaimed app "A Troop is a Group of Monkeys" by Julie Hedlund. This interactive book for kids introduces some of the fun plural nouns for ocean animals. You already know about a "school of fish," but how about a "cast of crabs" and a "battery of barracudas"? This rhyming story, written by Julie Hedlund and illustrated by Pamela Baron, is fun to read and play with. Featuring original singalong music by Tim McCanna. Arr, ahoy mateys! "A Shiver of Sharks" has just floated onto the App Store shores!
Each of the animal groups comes to life on the screen and invites young readers to enjoy interactive play while reinforcing the vocabulary words on each page. The pelicans scoop their mighty beaks into the water for fish, and the gorgeous jellyfish dance and change color under your fingers.
Be a good ocean visitor! Readers can help the swordfish avoid a harpoon, protect the animals' habitat by cleaning up the sea floor, and more.
This story is tied to Common Core standards and includes information for teachers and parents on how to enhance a reader's comprehension with reading strategies and activity ideas.
