How to Make a Shark Smile by Shawn Achor

This ARC was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher, Sourcebooks, in exchange for my honest review. How to Make a Shark Smile publishes on February 1, 2020.

My Child’s Thoughts:

My daughter loved all the water animals. We met neon fish, sea horses, a dolphin, puffer fish, and a shark. She loved their facial expressions in the book and giggled so many times.

My Thoughts:

I loved the idea of making a grumpy person smile. The illustrations were really great, I mean REALLY great. The way the animals smile is just too much! The puffer fish had my daughter and I both laughing out loud. We will absolutely be doing this smile test in our house for a while.

What’s this Book About Anyway?

A dolphin is placed into a new aquarium and is so excited to meet new friends. As she swim around though, she finds no happiness. Every animal is missing its special thing, neon fish don’t glow, electric eels aren’t electric, etc. She meets the puffer fish who explains to her that Shark is scary and not a friend.

Dolphin decides to show everyone how to play a smile game that no one can resist; she says even Shark won’t be able to. But will he?
