Nate loves sharks. He reads shark books every day, watches sharks on TV, and talks about them nonstop. He even likes to pretend he's a shark wherever he goes! However, there is one small problem. . . . Nate can't swim. When his older brother points this out, Nate works hard to overcome his fears and learn how to blow bubbles, use a kickboard, and finally swim without help, as quickly and as gracefully as a shark. Will he be able to beat his brother in a swim tryout and get his bite back? Kids will love this jawsome book complete with vibrant and whimsical art and a list of shark facts in the back!

This book is so fun, especially for little shark lovers. Nate shows determination and perseverance as he learns how to swim. I also enjoyed all of the shark word play, and the illustrations are cute!
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
