Review:  We really enjoyed this book, and it was perfect for opening up a conversation about starting school and the nervous feelings we feel.  My girls started Kindergarten and 1st grade this year.

Readers join Sharkee as he searches for the bear, stopping to ask all sorts of marine animals along the way. This bubbly story will have children giggling at Sharkee’s silly encounters.

Will Sharkee ever find the teddy bear?
