The Great White Shark Scientist by Sy Montgomery - ESSENTIAL

Montgomery, Sy The Great White Shark Scientist, 61 pages.  NON-FICTION.  HoughtonMH, 2016.  $19.  Content: G.

Between Jaws and Shark Week, most people are afraid of sharks, especially the Great White.  Greg Skomal, on the other hand, loves them, and spends his time researching sharks and educating people about them. 

I can never stress enough how incredibly awesome the entire Scientists in the Field series is.  If I taught any science class on any level, I would have at least one, if not two assignments each year based upon these books.  Excellent examples of the scientific method are included and they are fresh, new faces in the science world, instead of the oldy-moldies.
