Sophie & Max Show Some Shark Love

Introduce young children to the concept of shark conservation!

Sophie and Max embark on a beautiful shipwreck dive to help them learn more about sharks, but Max has a secret—he is afraid of sharks!

Will facing his fears help him to overcome the panic he feels at the very thought of coming face to face with these toothy fish?

Together, the two friends meet three species of sharks on their adventure, falling in love with these beautiful animals at first sight. They learn why sharks are so important to the ocean, how they keep our reefs healthy, and why we need to help sharks now more than ever as they become endangered through over-fishing.
