My son (2.5 years) and I love Shark in the Park and I was so excited when he received this one for Christmas, but I have been very disappointed.
There is nothing wrong with the story and my son enjoys it, but the glow in the dark factor is rather pathetic. After reading one review in which the reviewer was amazed at someones criticism of the glow factor, I went back to it again this week to give it another chance, but neither my son or myself were impressed. The only thing that glows in the book is the sharks fin (and the item which Timothy is actually looking at). I have seen other glow in the dark books with much more detail and text which glows, and so this is really disappointing. My son would much rather read it with the light on so that he can take a good look at the pictures. It's such a shame that the outlines of the pictures don't glow too as that would make the book much more fun in the dark.
