A "Fin-tastic" Grand Prize Pack Giveaway from National Geographic Kids Books (Valued at $60!)


As a Florida resident for over thirty years, I have always been fascinated by the ocean and its creatures. Sharks are among the most mysterious and compelling animals. Although I don’t exactly desire a close encounter with them, I’m more than happy to read about these majestic beasts and share them with my family. National Geographic Kids Books has an amazing selection of family-friendly books that celebrate sharks and their habitat. Chock-full of gorgeous photos, exciting firsthand accounts of shark encounters, and weird, wild and fascinating facts, these books are perfect for STEM-related learning, fun summer reading, backseat boredom busting and any shark “fin-atic"! Read on to learn more about these terrific books and then enter my giveaway for the chance to win all 5 of them!


The Ultimate Book of Sharks (ages 9-12, hardcover, $19.99)

Written by internationally acclaimed marine photographer and National Geographic Explorer Brian Skerry, this book 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 it’s 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, paperback, $4.99)

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 independently, are ready for more complex vocabulary and love sharks! Like all books in National Geographic Kids reader series, this title was developed in consultation with early education experts and written to maximize interest and achieve reading success.


Little Kids First Big Book of the Ocean (ages 4-8, hardcover, $14.95)

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.


by National Geographic Explorer Sylvia A. Earle (ages 8-12, paperback, $12.99)

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, hardcover, $6.99)

Sharks are among the world's top predators, but that's just ONE reason why they are SO COOL. 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.
