Sharks! Oh boy, I certainly remember the shark phase that occurred in our household. It was all shark, all the time for a while there.
We read shark books, played shark games and pulled out all of our plastic shark figures to tell long involved stories. My poor characters died rather grisly deaths by shark attack. Along the way we learned that not very many people actually die by shark attack.
Isn’t it great when kids have an interest that gets everyone learning all types of new things? Love that.
