Clark the Shark celebrates boisterous enthusiasm—and knowing when it's time for indoor voices! A great choice for circle time or for sharing one on one with your energetic little shark.
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 and always means well—but when his enthusiasm is too much for his friends, Clark's teacher, Mrs. Inkydink, helps him figure out a way to tone it down.
Clark the Shark is a great read-aloud picture book, with fun rhythm and rhyme, from the ever-popular Bruce Hale and Guy Francis. Kids love the energy and humor and ask for repeated readings. At the same time, they get the background message about how to work on impulse control.

Praise for Clark the Shark
“Clark loves everything about his life at Theodore Roosterfish Elementary, but his supersize enthusiasm is hard for the other fish to handle The full-color artwork in a cartoon style is pleasant and fun.” — School Library Journal
