Chomp! Bite into Shark Week

Shark books for kids

Da-dum... da-dum... da-dum da-dum da-dum ... the suspense is building as nature fans District-wide count down to the legendary, the terrifying ... Discovery Channel Shark Week!


In honor of this fascinating occasion, the Teen Space department will be hosting our very own Shark Week Party, an arts-and-crafts family program for children and teens.

If you're a kid, you might enjoy sinking your jaws into a few great shark books from the Children's Room.  Here are a few examples:
