New Smyrna Beach, Florida

Do you know why this is one of my favorite weeks of summer?  Because it’s SHARK WEEK on Discovery Channel starting on Sunday, August 10 at 7 PM!  Statistically speaking, your chances of being attacked by a shark are pretty slim. In a given year, you’re looking at about a one in 11.5 million chance.  This year for vacation I went to the beach that has the most recorded shark bites in the world, New Smyrna Beach, Florida.  My family has been going there for years and luckily none of us have been bitten!  New Smyrna is always mentioned during Shark Week.  

 I have compiled all of our shark books for you to check out so you can learn shark cool facts.  I know someone who is studying to be a marine biologist.  He got to study sharks in Rhode Island this summer.  Maybe you’d like to do that someday.  The library has books that tell you what it’s like to be a marine biologist studying sharks.  So when you have a chance, drive, pedal, walk, run, swim (it’s safe here – no shark attacks), and take a peek at our shark week collection.  You know you want to!
