Shark Week: Books for Kids!

Since it is Tuesday, that means we have a "Ten for Tuesday" list for you! Today we highlight ten shark themed books for young readers. There were so many to choose from, but we found ten good ones.

Remember, the local library is FULL of great books for kids about sharks! If you have a library card, it is FREE to check out shark books for your kids! From picture books to real shark stories, take your kids to the library before Shark Week so they can stock up on books about sharks!

If you can't find what you are looking for at the library, here are some top kid picks on Amazon for Shark Week--just click the image to follow the link:

As you can see, there are a lot of books about sharks for kids of all ages! Incorporate daily reading goals into your Shark Week activities! Make sure you tune in to the Discovery Channel starting on July 22nd for all the Shark Week 30th Anniversary shows!
