"Who am I?" wonders Shark Baby. When his "mermaid's purse" egg case is torn loose in a storm, he finds himself on a journey through different ocean habitats: kelp forests, coral reefs, and seagrass meadows. He learns what kind of shark he isn't, but not what kind he is. He needs to find the "mermaid" to learn where he belongs, but the ocean is big and full of dangers. Will he find out who he is--and what he can do--in time?This fictional story includes a 4-page For Creative Mindssection in the back of the book and a 47-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guideonline. Shark Baby is vetted by experts and designed to encourage parental engagement. Its extensive back matter helps teachers with time-saving lesson ideas, provides extensions for science, math, and social studies units, and uses inquiry-based learning to help build critical thinking skills in young readers. The Spanish translation supports ELL and dual-language programs. The enhanced ebook reads aloud in both English and Spanish with word highlighting and audio speed control to promote oral language skills, fluency, pronunciation, text engagement, and reading comprehension.
