Summary

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a shark went to your school? By imagining animals in everyday scenarios readers can learn about their size, diet and other features. For example, what if a shark went to the dentist? He would be there a long time, a great white shark has nearly 240 teeth! Featuring superb illustrations with an engaging question and answer format, this series will keep young readers entertained and help them to understand and retain animal facts.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The newest volumes in the What if A . . . series cheerfully provide information on marine life in a fun, easily understood way. Laid out with jaunty cartoon drawings, each title asks a series of (frequently goofy) questions, and answers them with facts. Could a Shark Do Gymnastics? focuses on the great white shark, using the question Could a shark play tennis? to prompt discussion about a shark's abilities to sense nearby fish, and What if a shark went to the dentist? to provide details about a shark's general size, habitat, and capabilities. Each volume ends with some additional facts, a map of habitats, and a final postcard from the animal. The illustrations and the silly questions will engage younger readers, and the information, though cursory, is made both interesting and memorable.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2015 Booklist"
