Back of Book:
Clark the Shark is a great read-aloud picture book, with fun rhythm and rhyme, from the ever-popular Bruce Hale and Guy Francis.
Clark is a shark with zing, bang, and BOOM. Clark zooms into school, crashes through the classroom, and is rowdy at recess. Clark loves life—but when his enthusiasm is too much for his friends, Clark’s teacher, Mrs. Ink ydink, helps him figure out a way to tone it down.
Clark the Shark is a great story to integrate during the first week of school. All children must be taught to have indoor voices and how to find the balance of being excited, and not hurting others. I loved the examples of how Clark turned everything into a rhyme so he could remember them important things in school. I used this story as an example to my students that there is a time and a place for everything. This is such a fun story and a must read for shark week and back to school.
