Shark lovers will enjoy hunting down the TRUTH about their favorite ocean predators in this innovative new Science Reader series.

Baby sharks are toothless at first, right? That's a LIE! The TRUTH is, sharks are born with a mouthful of teeth to protect themselves and hunt right away. Though this engaging early reader is 100% fun, 25% of it is FALSE! In a unique question-and-answer format, proficient readers are quizzed about their favorite ocean predators to see if they can separate facts from "lies." The book's mascot--the Truth Sleuth--guides readers through this funny and fact-packed Step 3 Reader, filled with photos of sharks in action, as well as kid-appealing art and humor.

Step 3 Readers feature engaging characters in easy-to-follow plots about popular topics, for children who are ready to read on their own.
