Swimming With Sharks features two young girls living on the Outer Banks of North Carolina with their parents, who work at a marine science center. The girls love the ocean and are learning about its creatures. The story opens with the girls snorkeling in the ocean while their parents dive below them, conducting research. Back at the aquarium, they overhear students talking about sharks and spreading their own misunderstanding. After a confrontation with the other students, the girls help their parents nurse a sick sand tiger shark back to health. The story is fun and entertaining, but is also loaded with information about sharks and why they are something to be respected and admired, but not feared.
Swimming With Sharks is about the same approximate length as the Magic Treehouse books and other beginning chapter books. There are eight chapters, each about 1000 words long.
