**** "A terrific way to inspire close thinking about how we name things and the power of words. How perfect are collective nouns like a screech of gulls or a scoop of pelicans? (Pretty darn perfect.) Fun facts, intriguing words, and beautiful art combine for an enchanting learning experience."
— Laura Purdie Salas, author of A LEAF CAN BE..., WATER CAN BE..., and BOOKSPEAK! POEMS ABOUT BOOKS
"A Shiver of Sharks" is the delightful ocean SEA-quel to the critically-acclaimed app "A Troop is a Group of Monkeys" by Julie Hedlund. This interactive book for kids introduces some of the fun plural nouns for ocean animals. You already know about a "school of fish," but how about a "cast of crabs" and a "battery of barracudas"? This rhyming story, written by Julie Hedlund and illustrated by Pamela Baron, is fun to read and play with. Featuring original singalong music by Tim McCanna. Arr, ahoy mateys! "A Shiver of Sharks" has just floated onto the App Store shores!
Each of the animal groups comes to life on the screen and invites young readers to enjoy interactive play while reinforcing the vocabulary words on each page. The pelicans scoop their mighty beaks into the water for fish, and the gorgeous jellyfish dance and change color under your fingers.
Be a good ocean visitor! Readers can help the swordfish avoid a harpoon, protect the animals' habitat by cleaning up the sea floor, and more.
This story is tied to Common Core standards and includes information for teachers and parents on how to enhance a reader's comprehension with reading strategies and activity ideas.

Kids will be fascinated!
Julie has done a fabulous job again, this time, exploring the ocean and its creatures. With the able skills and creativity of Tim McCanna and Illustrator Pamela Baron, this picture book app will have kids interacting with the sea creatures over and over again, learning their habits, their names, and a way to protect their environment. I highly recommend it!
There is lots of fun vocabulary in this book which makes it highly entertaining to read aloud. I love the animals that were highlighted too-- barracudas! Jellyfish! Flamingos! Who knew that a group of jellyfish is called a smack? I didn't and I worked at zoo for two years that had a whole exhibit of jellies! Great app accompanied by an awesome theme song!
Fun at sea!
We enjoyed the singing whales and flotilla of swordfish! I am constantly amazed at these names. It's so fun to learn something new. (Should I be embarrassed I never knew this before?) The words, illustrations and music are perfectly put together. Thank you for an awesome book app!
