Read If Sharks Disappeared Online Free - A healthy ocean is home to many different kinds of animals. They can be
big, like a whale,
tiny, like a shrimp,
and even scary, like a shark.
Even though sharks can be scary, we need them to keep the oceans healthy. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, many shark species are in danger of extinction, and that can cause big problems in the oceans and even on land.
What would happen if this continued and sharks disappeared completely?
Artist Lily Williams explores how the disappearance would affect other animals across the whole planet in this clever book about the importance of keeping sharks, and our oceans, healthy.

There's been a recent spate of books considering what might happen to our world if certain key species were gone.

This would be a great book to read for classroom units on conservation and the environment. It explains in a very simple way what the potential effects of losing an apex predator like the shark would have on the environment. That the family in the book is a family of color is a cherry on top.

Excellent nonfiction which reads like a picture book. Not quite short enough for a toddler storytime, but, probably excellent as a kindergarten read loud. This book is mostly about the niche sharks fill in the environment and what would happen if they were gone. This book relies on illustrations...
