The Uncover book series

I just got done reading my four year old’s favorite book, Uncover a Shark by (David George Gordon. He LOVES this book, and while the cover says it’s for eight years old plus, he has memorized all the facts about the shark and was explaining to me features of the shark’s anatomy. This series is part book and part model, which he find really intriguing. So much so, that I felt like I was talking to a kid who would one day grow up to be a zoologist or other scientist.

The book has all of sixteen pages, but each page also has a three-dimensional plastic part of the shark’s anatomy. The text is about the organ (liver, brain) or body part featured (teeth, skin). Peppered throughout are fun “did-you-know?” style trivia about the shark. I’m not much into sharks, but enjoyed reading the book with him and sticking my hand into the sharks belly, and feeling its teeth and vertebrae.

The series includes other books in the style include Uncover the Human Body , Frog, Cobra, Crocodile, Tiger, and Uncover a Dog all of which I’ll look at for his next birthday.
