This week we will be reading Oona and the Shark. We will learn about the ocean, mermaid myths, and pirate lore. There will be a coloring activity with pirate hats and mermaids.


Oona and the SharkThe big sea’s littlest mischief-maker, Oona, is back in another delightful tale from New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award winner Raissa Figueroa.

Oona loves to share her inventions with her friends. They’re big and bold and LOUD—just like her! But there’s one underwater creature who doesn’t seem to enjoy Oona’s company, or her creations.

Stanley the shark! He doesn’t care for her squeaky unicorn. And he’s far too busy for the Sea Horse Carousel. And oh GOODNESS! Oona’s latest hopping, chopping, and popping inventions just make him angry.

Oona may not know what Stanley likes, but she does know what he doesn’t. And maybe that’s a good place to start. Because mermaids never stop trying…not when there’s a friend out there to make.

Kelly DiPucchio is the New York Times bestselling author of many beloved books for children, including Grace for President, Dragon Was Terrible, and Oona, illustrated by Raissa Figueroa. As a little girl Kelly wanted a pet otter but settled for a pet goat instead. When she’s not writing, Kelly loves to search for treasure and mermaids in Michigan’s Great Lakes. Land friends can visit her online at www.kellydipucchio.com.

Raissa Figueroa loves walking the beaches in search of tiny treasures of her own. She lives and works in sunny San Diego, CA. She’s the illustrator for several children’s books, including Oona, written by Kelly DiPucchio. You can visit her at www.rizzyfig.com.
