The ocean is filled with music. Two rockin’ sharks, Shayla and Santiago, search out the source of the beats and, when they find it, dance.

Rockin’ Sharks Excerpt:

“Do you hear that?” Shayla asked Santiago.
“Yes. I’ve never heard anything like it. What do you think it is?” Santiago shark asked.
“I don’t know.” Then a grin crept across her face and she said, “I think I like it. Do you want to see if we can find it?”
The other shark smiled back and said, “That sounds like fun. Let’s go!” Shayla and Santiago circled around each other trying to discover to the source of the mysterious sound. After a couple of circles, both sharks knew the direction of the sound. So, they exchanged knowing smiles and swam in that direction. As they approached the source of the sound, it changed. Now the sharks could hear music, faintly at first. The music grew stronger and louder. Up ahead the sharks spotted a dark shape at the surface of the water.
