The images are very nice and not scary, for those who may be afraid of sharks. However, just learning about the few you have in the oceans where you live might be scary enough to make you want to never swim again! I know my moms totally afraid of sharks, someone who goes to the beach often or use too! However, with all the shark attacks, it sort of made her scared to ever go to the ocean and I wouldn't blame her. Especially, watching movies with sharks, how big and scary that would be to lose someone. Well, this book covers so many sharks and honestly I rather just read about them and not have to see them in the water! Finally, this is a terrific guide and a wonderful book for both adults and children!
