Shark Week "Fin-Tastic" National Geographic Kids Book Collection (Review & Giveaway)

I believe that the love of reading begins at a very early age.  I read to both of my children while I was pregnant and have always encouraged them to look at books and read, even as toddlers.  Books let their imaginations run free and take them to places unknown.  Books also fill their minds with knowledge and facts that will fuel them for life!

Growing up, I remember reading and looking through my Dad's National Geographic books and I was always amazed at how interesting they were.  When my kids were young, I was introduced to National Geographic Kids books and instantly fell in love!  Now that my kids are older, I love gifting books to my nieces and nephews. Books make the perfect gift!

My daughter has been obsessed with sharks for years and can tell you just about anything you want to know about them!  She is my shark girl and Shark Week is going to be the only thing we're watching this week!

Whether your family is all about sinking their teeth into the amazing, jaw-dropping shows from the summertime pop culture phenomena of Shark Week and SharkFest or maybe Baby Shark is more your speed  (do-do-do-do-do!),  this is going to excite you!

National Geographic Kids Books is celebrating this majestic beast and its habitat with a fantastic shark-themed giveaway for kids of all ages.   Jam-packed full of brilliant photos, exciting first hand accounts of shark encounters and weird, wild and fascinating shark facts, these books are perfect for learning, fun summer reading, backseat boredom busting and the shark “fin”-atic in your family! 

Here is a brief description of each book:

The Ultimate Book of Sharks (ages 9-12) by internationally acclaimed marine photographer and National Geographic Explorer Brian Skerry is an underwater adventure like no other.  With exclusive photographs and personal insight from Skerry, this book takes the reader below the surface and into the minds of these spectacular predators.  Beyond the feared fins and terrifying teeth, readers will learn what its like to swim with these amazing fish, how they live, what they eat, their superhero-like senses and better understand why these graceful, confident, perfectly sculpted predators are also vulnerable animals that we need to protect.  

National Geographic Readers: Sharks! (ages 5-8) - He’s quick. He’s silent. He has five rows of deadly teeth. Chomp! Meet the shark—the fish who ruled the deep before dinosaurs roamed the Earth! This leveled reader is for kids who are starting to read on their own, are ready for more complex vocabulary and who love sharks!  Like all books in National Geographic Kids reader series, this title was developed in consultation with early education experts and are written to maximize interest and achieve reading success. 

Little Kids First Big Book of the Ocean (ages 4-8) - An adorable animal reference that includes the sea's high-interest animals, such as dolphins, sharks, sea otters, and penguins, and introduces kids to some of its lesser-known creatures. More than 100 charming animal photos illustrate the profiles, with facts about the creatures' sizes, diets, homes, and more. This book will quickly become a favorite at storytime, bedtime, and any other time.

Extreme Ocean: Amazing Animals, High-Tech Gear, Record-Breaking Depths and Much More by National Geographic Explorer Sylvia A. Earle (ages 8-12)  An action-packed combination of science and adventure, famed National Geographic Explorer Sylvia Earle leads readers on an in-depth tour of life beneath the waves. Come face-to-face with whales and sharks, learn about the newest and most hi-tech ocean gear and gadgets, experiment with hands-on activities, and join Earle as she recounts her most daring dives. Packed with fascinating tidbits, animal profiles, and up-to-date science, each chapter combines stunning photography with fun, accessible text. Perfect for curious kids, ocean lovers, young explorers, and the classroom. Extreme Ocean reveals the mystery, majesty, danger, and — above all --the importance of our ocean.

So Cool! Sharks (ages 3-7) - Sharks are among the world's top predators, but that's just ONE reason why they are SO COOL. So who wouldn't want to hang out with them to learn more! These books blend awesome animal photos with silly quips and info that will delight young readers and animal enthusiasts. For example, kids can catch the hunting habits of a great white shark while learning that its true nature is as chill as a frozen fish stick. This is the perfect little reader to get their brain buzzing and keep them laughing during their downtime. 


What I love most about these books is their detail and bright photos! The photos are simply amazing and they are so fun and informative. These are the perfect books for any child's collection!
