    Ugh, I hate reading this one aloud. For me... it just doesn't work. A mother, using completely ineffective communication with her kid, who responds in facts about sharks. And then, suddenly, that's all it is - fact after fact about sharks, which might be fun to know, but as a read-aloud it falls flat. My classes tend to disagree it seems, though. The last fact - about coconuts - seems to grab them in particular, and many kids are left sputtering in fascinated disbelief. Ugh, I hate reading this one aloud. For me... it just doesn't work.

    This book starts off about a mischievous little boy who is obsessed with sharks. He give his mother lots of facts about sharks in a way to justify his naughty behaviour. Then suddenly, half way through, it turns into a book about shark facts. It almost seems like the story wasn't completely finished and the author's shark research was added, and the story wasn't given a resolution, nor was the boy's bad behaviour addressed. It also ends on a morbid tone. The last page ends with, "Beware of shark This book starts off about a mischievous little boy who is obsessed with sharks.

After reading this page and closing the book, my friend's daughter and I both had a "WTH" expression.

    The pattern set up by Mom’s nagging and Stevie’s shark response hooks you and makes you want to turn the page to find out what Stevie’s going to come up with next. The bright, cartoon-style illustrations are fun! This book got a big thumbs up from my kindergarten students who asked me to read it again!

    This book seems unsure of its own focus. The artwork, while animated and expressive also appears incomplete (see the unfinished book cover on the opening page of the story). The book wanders clumsily between being a story for having a discussion about children with behaviour issues and a book of shark facts, and neither develop or resolve well.

    I found this more interesting as a concept than anything else - using a fiction narrative to entice children into a non-fiction experience, sort of. It worked well enough, in that my girls understood what was going on and found the shark facts interesting. I’m not sure it did what it set out to accomplish, though.

    As other reviewers have commented, the story ends rather abruptly, with no resolution or attempt to address the behaviour that leads the boy to spout shark facts at his mom in a belligerent response to avoid doing what he's told. Then the story suddenly switches exclusively to shark facts. Kids will still enjoy the story and the shark facts, but educators and parents may find it a bit lacking.

    This is an okay book. It has a smattering of facts about sharks but is primarily about a boy who ignores everything his mom says while justifying his behavior by saying "Well, such and such shark would do this."

    For shark fans, this book is full of interesting shark facts. The little boy, Stevie, loves sharks so much he wants to be one, which results in some inappropriate human behavior (even if the behavior is common for sharks.) Kids thought it was funny and interesting.

    This is the ultimate book for all young Ichthyologists. As we follow Stevie and his crazy antics we learn about shark behavior. Bold illustrations accompany easy to read facts and funny text. A must have for shark lovers ages 5 to 7.

    A cute book about a young boy who LO-OVES sharks. It's full of shark facts. I didn't realize there were so many different types of sharks. A cute book about a young boy who LO-OVES sharks. It's full of shark facts. I didn't realize there were so many different types of sharks.

    A good bit of information, but too chaotic for my tastes.

    I like how shark facts are presented in a story form in this book. The pictures are great and I think that kids who like sharks will love all the shark facts that are presented in this book.

    Shark loving kiddos will love this! Stevie behaves like a shark throughout his entire day, and we learn fun shark facts. The back matter is also fantastic and kid friendly.

    We read this before and gave it three stars, but they seemed to like it more this time. Yay for shark facts!

    I would have liked this more if it included sources for the facts included at the end and/or a resources page.

    There is an abrupt shift in the story, going from a boy obnoxiously acting like different types of sharks to just a fact book about them. I'm not sure I would use this in story time...

    What a fun way to share shark facts. Although Stevie was an annoying little kid to his mom. And I wasn't too keen on the illustrations. A bit too cartoony for me.

    A quirky story that’s a mix of narrative and shark facts.

    A fun book, my grandnephew will love it when I can catch up to him to give it to him. I enjoyed it so much I read it twice. Smile.

    I Love Sharks, Too!, by Canadian author Leanne Shirtliffe, is a book to experience and enjoy. If you ever wonder about sharks but you don’t want to get into heavy science facts, or get too close to them in person, this would be an enjoyable read for you. Written for children it’s safe and fun. 🙂 Stevie is a little boy who loves sharks. He loves them so much he wishes he were one himself. He thinks about them a lot! And why not? Sharks are amazing creatures! One day, every time his mother spoke to I Love Sharks, Too!, by Canadian author Leanne Shirtliffe, is a book to experience and enjoy. If you ever wonder about sharks but you don’t want to get into heavy science facts, or get too close to them in person, this would be an enjoyable read for you. Written for children it’s safe and fun. 🙂 Stevie is a little boy who loves sharks. He loves them so much he wishes he were one himself. He thinks about them a lot! And why not? Sharks are amazing creatures! One day, every time his mother spoke to him about something, he replied with a shark fact that fit the topic. When his mother said to stop squirming, he told her that whale sharks can’t stop moving or they’ll die. When she told him to use his manners at dinner, he said bull sharks tear their food apart with their fifty rows of teeth! When she warned him about trying to scare her, he had a fact about hammerhead sharks’ eyes. They really weren’t communicating very well all day. Even when she told him to turn out his light at bedtime he replied with the fact that lantern sharks glow in the dark. Imagine what that must be like. Lorenzo Montatore’s illustrations in I Love Sharks, Too! are full of energy and will make young readers – and grown-up ones – giggle. His art for this story is bold and crazy – which suits the story well. It’s enjoyable and educational at the same time. I Love Sharks, Too! has a surprise ending, a satisfying one. The actual story is followed by eight pages of very interesting shark facts humorously illustrated.
