Shark Week! Jawsome Books for Kids

It’s Shark Week, which means it’s time to nerd out and learn about these incredible ocean dwellers! 

Use your library card to help your budding marine biologist access shark information with:

  • Kanopy Kids – offers a handful of shark videos that are just right for kids
  • World Book Early Learning – the perfect tool for pre- and emergent readers to explore independently or learn with an adult.
  • Gale in Context – another database with articles and images perfect for elementary and middle school
  • Hoopla –  Try browning their more than 100 e-books on sharks. This is perfect if there’s a particular kind of shark you’d like to learn about (whale sharks are my favorite).

The books below are some of my favorites about sharks! Click on a cover to see the descriptions in the catalog and place one on hold to pick up on your next trip to the library.
