"My fascination with sharks began at the age of 5 and I have been lucky enough to have had a great career working with these amazing animals. As a kid I picked up every book that I could about sharks, but I certainly wish I had an iPad back then. The Discovery Kids Sharks app for the iPad is great for any child interested in sharks or the oceans. It offers a good mix of reading, photos, videos and even games. When I am able to get it away from my 4 year old daughter, my favorite part is the feeding game. - Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor"
