Sammy Shark was not feeling well. He tried eating tuna but his teeth hurt and then his stomach felt uneasy when he had soft seaweed. Sammy knew everything was not all right when he felt dizzy while swimming. Sammy went to his neighbor Stacy Starfish, asking for help. She rubbed his tummy but that did not help him feel better. He went to Stanley Shrimp and that also did not help him feel better. Sammy was scared to go and see Nurse Shark but his friends Stacy and Stanley went with him. How does Nurse Shark check Sammy and what does she see in Sammy's stomach?

Sammy Shark's Stomach Ache by Jennifer Storelli tackles the relevant subject of protecting the environment. In the story, Nurse Shark tells Sammy that he should be careful with what he eats because there is a lot of human garbage in the ocean. The story explains the concept of recycling and encourages children to be more responsible for protecting the ocean and the creatures that call it their home. The illustrations make it easy for readers to comprehend the author's concept and message. It is very important to make children understand the role of the ocean and the creatures living in it when it comes to protecting the environment. This story does just that in a manner that children will find enjoyable. It is a good story for reading aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries, and for bedtime storytelling.
