Summary: In brief rhyming text, this little book describes how scientists use robots to track mako sharks (“The mako twists! The robot turns! They dart and dip and dive/The robot shoots a video and sends it to you live!”). The last two pages give a more complete, but still very simple, explanation of how the scientists study these sharks. Ages 3-7.
Pros: Even very young children will enjoy learning about the work these scientists do. The illustrations do a nice job of portraying people who may not fit the stereotype of “scientist”. Look for two other books in this series, about space and dinosaurs.
Cons: Those looking for a more “Jaws”-like book about sharks will be disappointed.
