About Young Naturalist Books

Naturalists are people who know how living things like plants and animals work. The world needs new naturalists that understand sharks and that can help protect them and our ocean planet. WHAT'S COOL ABOUT SHARKS is written to educate and inspire people to help make the world a better place by sharing what they learn in the book and by becoming activists. The book shows that by working together we can make a difference.
