Chomp! A Book About Sharks. L.

Berger, Melvin. Chomp! A Book About Sharks. L. 1999.

This book tells all about different shark species, a shark’s life-cycle, how sharks feed, and how sharks swim and live.  Popular above (and even below) its difficulty level, due to the great cover, exciting subject matter and cool photos of sharks.  Most of the vocabulary is straightforward and non-technical, so this can be a good introduction to more complex non-fiction writing as well.
