Three NJ towns issue shark warnings to swimmers

Swimmers at three of New Jersey's beaches were recently warned about two sharks seen swimming close to the shoreline.
Interested in sharks? Read Discover Sharks, a middle school-level book. The book has great details about different sharks (including the great white, the mako, and the hammerhead) as well as their characteristics. Did you know that sharks can't swim backwards? Did you know that they are darker on their top side than the bottom side?

This series also has books on bugs, big cats, and snakes.
