Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean’s Most Fearless Scientist
Shark Lady is an illustrated biography about Eugenie Clark. The pictures and the timeline at the end of the book are full of details, but it’s written as a story about Eugenie’s life growing up. Everyone thinks that sharks are dangerous and scary, but, even as a little girl, Eugenie thought that they were beautiful and interesting, so she grows up to study them. She dedicates her life to learning more about sharks.
I don’t always like biographies, but this one was interesting to me because of all the details, like mentioning the three specific species that she discovered or how she put sticky gum in her ears to keep the water out when she was diving in the ocean as a kid. I also really liked Eugenie’s determination and perseverance. I would have liked to have met her as she sounds a lot like me in the way she sees the world.
Kids who like sharks or who are doing reports on Eugenie Clark or sharks would definitely like this book. Everyone four years old and up will enjoy this book because even my mom also liked the book and learned something.
