   Great series, even for toddlers!
Nat's entire series was a total hit. Geo readers are invited to submit their own questions for Geo's Web site. I have purchased about 25 different titles, pre-readers and level 1 and 2 readers, said Gammerman. She will ask for certain things, but she has no plans to marry him. The pre-readers level books are extremely simple and great because she can read them herself. We love the more advanced ones too, because there is more information to talk about, Raymond said. Yes, I have learned quite a few facts, too. A great series. The price is reasonable and pictures are great, he said. These are really getting her interested in nature, animals and science. I will continue to buy these as they are released, for our collection, Sanrio said.
   Informative children's book about sharks!
In "Jaws," Michael Fishman writes, "the sharks are all there to eat." There are also some very cool facts about sharks. Both my son and I enjoyed the read. There are three parts to the book, interspersed with jokes and colorful pictures. Some of the pups may have left out the part about being happy that a certain shark was extinct. When my kid heard the comment, he was a bit offended. However, the ending does encourage coexistence among the many species of sea creature that inhabit it.
   class reader
I bought the kindle edition and used it with the class set I purchased from Amazon. com. ALL my students were engaged with the information and pictures in my 4th grade classroom. I'm going to purchase more of the kid readers but different titles for our whole group instruction.
   Worth a buy
I bought this book as a present for my nephew who is 4 years old, he needs someone to read it for him and loves the information and pictures given in the book.
   We love these books!!
New York Times bestselling geography book series, "The National Geographic Kids Book Club." And, just about everything about this book is cool. My 7 year old LOVES them and I enjoy learning new things myself! Even if your child cannot read. Note to self: This book will build their knowledge so much that they won't even notice. Young readers, for example, can learn so much from these shorter books. Brand new customers are raving about the service. So many great topics to choose from! The Vazzi gang has made a name for itself with its witty one-liners.
   Perfect for school!
I purchased this book for one of my students who is very interested in learning more about sharks. The pictures are great and the information provided was adequate for what I was looking for, Mr. Ridgeway said. The book was very well received by my student.
   Fine until the end
The book is a scientific fiction aimed at children. At the end, however, are three unsubstantiated claims that sharks may become extinct, leading to a worldwide moratorium on new research. It's great to be back home, but sharks and people need to learn to share the sea. Because it's a children's book, we don't have to include it. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   Shark Week!
I use this informational text to teach my second grade class during "shark week." Really nice photos, Mr. Caramore said. The book is well-suited to students who need help with text features.
   Informative and Age Appropriate
I've read this book with my 7 year old and he really enjoyed it. It was very informative without overloading the user interface, said Dr. Charles Bloom, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. National Geographic does a good job with this information in an age-appropriate manner through easy to understand language, and also includes photos of the subjects being discussed on that page. I recommend this book to all my students and parents. Simply put, it's a good idea to ask your child about what they've learned.
My almost 3-year-old son has devoured them all. I love that they are cheap, they have great pictures, and are full of facts that he has learned, Rowling said. It's pretty amazing when your toddler tells his daycare teacher that sharks don't have bones, they have cartilage, Tunick said. We are also buying all the pre-readers, level 1 and 2, so we can find them.
