Hammerhead vs. Bull Shark Reviews

    I have almost read all the Who Would Win? series books that our library has on their shelves. I am at awe at the information that is contained in them and the I really enjoy the comparing/contrasting that the author does with the two mammals that are highlighted in each of the books. The illustrations are fantastic, the text pops out you and colors are bright and colorful. I have been sharing my love of these non-fiction books with everyone I run into and hope to take a few of them with me next year when I sub teach in the classroom.In this selection, we are comparing and contrasting the hammerhead shark with the bull shark. My youngest son was fascinated with sharks when he was growing up so I recalled that although the bull shark had a boring name but he was quite a beast. I preferred the hammerhead shark though. I thought this strange-looking shark looked fierce with its eyes so removed from its body and there was also his horizonal snout to consider. Inside this novel, I learned a great deal about these sharks. Did you know that because of their funny-shaped heads, the hammerhead sharks have more sensors than other sharks, allowing them to sense fish and even smell fish better than other sharks? Did you know that bull sharks prefer shallow water making them more dangerous than great whites and tiger sharks to humans? When these sharks confront one another in a fight, which comprises the last couple pages of the book, these excellent fighters use their strength and their teeth to win the battle.

    Part of the Who Would Win? series, Hammerhead vs. Bull Shark compares and contrasts two types of shark species. Young readers learn about the sharks' anatomies, behaviors, fun and interesting facts, and humorously, things that neither species can do. All leading up to the final confrontation between the two sharks - where one will swim away and the other will not - which is a bit jarring after having spent several pages getting to know the animal. The last page of the book provides an opportunity for critical thinking skills as readers are given a checklist to determine which shark had the advantage in terms of length, weight, teeth, vision, and head shape, as well as an author note asking the reader to write their own ending to the fight. Packed with photos, charts, and interesting facts, this is a good choice for shark enthusiasts and young readers.

    Christopher was so excited to see this new addition to the Who Would Win series. This time though he read it himself, and he didn't have patience for all of the facts about the sharks. He only wanted to read the fight. As usual, we predicted who we thought would win. He chose the bull shark, and I chose the hammerhead. It was an excited fight, but I won't tell you who won. If you're kids are into animals at all, I think they'll love this series. It's perfect for ages 5-10.

    Jerry Pallotta’s non-fiction book, “Who Would Win? Hammerhead vs. Bull Shark” is a fun informative book for children of all ages. Children will enjoy the facts that compare and contrast hammerhead sharks with bull sharks. I would pair this with the book, “Clark the Shark” by Bruce Hale. It is another age appropriate book that features a shark named Clark, who goes to school. Clark, the shark, looks similar to bull shark on the cover of the non-fiction book. Clark struggles at school because he is so big, so strong, and so hungry!The problems that Clark faces every day, relate to some of the interesting facts about bull sharks. Bull sharks are very big and stocky. They are aggressive, vicious and have attacked many people. After bumping their prey first, bull sharks decide if they want to take a bite! I would discuss with my class the fun facts about bull sharks and hammerhead sharks. One fact would be their enormous size, so I would demonstrate their size with the class. I would pick about three or four students, whose height totals about 12 feet. They would lay on the floor, head to toe. This would give the students a representation of the size of a bull shark. Then I would pick 6 to 7 students, whose height totals about 20 feet. They would also lay on the floor, head to toe. Students would realize just how enormous the hammerhead sharks can be. The students, especially the boys, will love discussing the scary facts about sharks. The fiction book, “Clark the Shark”, will lighten the mood with a whimsical story of a shark going to school.

    Interesting facts about two different types of sharks--the hammerhead and the bull shark--fill this book's pages, guaranteeing that it will be popular with young readers who don't typically gravitate to reading material. Characteristics of each of these marine-living creatures are provided as well as discussion and illustrations of their teeth, tails, and anatomy. I wasn't particularly interested in "Things a Hammerhead Shark Can't Do" or "Things a Bull Shark Can't Do," because the examples are ridiculous, but many young readers will snicker over them and be captured by the possibilities of one of these sharks singing. When the battle between the two animals starts, it will be interesting to see which one wins. Undoubtedly, this book will spur many lively discussions about the possible supremacy of one type of shark over the other.

    This is a very educational and meaningful book. I learnt a lot about the difference between Hammerhead shark and Bull shark. For example, the difference between their tail, the shapes of their teeth, the types of hammerheads, where bull sharks appear etc. I also learned a lot of interesting facts e.g. sharks are seawater fish……Overall, I would recommend this book to readers who are interested in marine life and sharks.
