This is the story of a woman who dared to dive, defy, discover, and inspire. This is the story of Shark Lady. One of the best science picture books for children, Shark Lady is a must for both teachers and parents alike

An Amazon Best Book of the Month
Named a Best Children's Book of 2017 by Parents magazine

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.

Determined to prove them wrong, Eugenie devoted her life to learning about sharks. After earning several college degrees and making countless discoveries, Eugenie wrote herself into the history of science, earning the nickname Shark Lady. Through her accomplishments, she taught the world that sharks were to be admired rather than feared and that women can do anything they set their minds to.

An inspiring story by critically acclaimed zoologist Jess Keating about finding the strength to discover truths that others aren't daring enough to see. Includes a timeline of Eugenie's life and many fin-tastic shark facts

       For the shark lovers and women’s history enthusiasts
    The binding is worn and the pages are crinkled, but it is hard to tell from the photos. The story of how Eugenie Clark became the Ocean's Most Fearless Scientist is a great example of a woman breaking a male stereotype. Take a look at her life and see how she overcame obstacles. A pioneer in the field! My son, a shark lover, has been reading this book for a long time. All of my children will have a story that proves they can do anything.

       This is a very nice bio of a female scientist.
    This book is a nice examination of a woman's life, and it includes an odd break from the aquarium to university. An actual time line of Eugenie Clark's life, a useful concept to learn early, and a list of shark fallacies that Clark helped uprootchallenge are all of interest to older girls.

       Wonderful book about an amazing woman
    Eugenie Clark is rarely talked about. She was a woman with a passion for adventure and science. She dispelled many myths about sharks. One of our favorites is this. A must for any kid interested in animals and any parent looking for a brilliant female role model

       Child-Friendly, Terrific and Beautifully illustrated!
    I am a second grade teacher and I absolutely recommend this book. My students are learning about biographies of people who made a difference. The impact that society has had on women and people of color throughout history is explored. In this book, we get a glimpse into the world of a brave woman who defies society's expectations of what she should be, what she should do and what she should focus on. She persevered towards her goals. We have learned more about sharks and other ocean creatures because of her. Thank you so much for this treasure!

       Dive in!
    My 5yo daughter chose Sharknado as her birthday theme and had to go outside of the box. We both share a passion for sharks. I couldn't believe how perfect the book was when I read it. The illustrations are beautiful. My daughter loves it. It was inspired by a girl.

       Not for kids under 5
    The book is not suitable for 2 year olds. 3 year olds. It seems like a book for a 5 year old, but don't sell me a book for a toddler when the language and ideas are so advanced that the kid loses interest.

       My five-year old is in LOVE with this book
    My five-year old is in love with this book and wants to study sharks. We have gotten this book twice from the library and have renewed it many times, so we had it for four months. I decided that we should buy her her own copy.

       One of the best books for kids we have
    We have one of the best books for kids. It's super informative. My kids love it. It is a story that kids understand. The timelines of facts at the end of the books are something my kids always request to be read, and it introduces them to some grown up concepts. It's just awesome! !
