Summary: Sherman, a shark at the Salty Dog Aquarium, has the blues. Whenever he shows his sharp teeth, he accidentally scares the children who come to visit. His manatee friend Wallace, on the other hand, is a big hit. Sherman tries everything from hiding to wearing a ballerina costume, but the fact is, he can’t change who he is. Behind the Glass with Sherman the Shark educates children on the valuable role sharks play in the ocean ecosystem, the threats sharks face and why shark conservation is a must. Readers also learn the importance of being one’s self, no matter what. A portion of the proceeds for this book go directly to organizations that help educate people about shark conservation.

Sherman is down in the dumps. He's desperate for the children who visit the aquarium to like him. He tries smiling a big toothy smile and even wearing a seaweed tutu, but nothing seems to work. Ready to hide from the visitors, Sherman encounters Mr. McFeeney who reminds Sherman the importance of being himself. Will Sherman take Mr. McFeeney's advice?
I love this creative tale. The author does a wonderful job of explaining important facts and the use of shark's teeth to highlight additional learning is inventive. Sherman's silly antics will easily entertain readers while they learn about sharks. Children will also find the vividly detailed illustrations appealing.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Perfect for classrooms and homeschooling too!
