Review: Hammerheads and More, by Steven Otfinoski


New from World Book! The Bright Connections Kids’ Learning Package is a set of eight books designed to make reading fun by utilizing a variety of topics that children love! This eight book set is fun and educational! Each paperback volume will excite young learners by focusing on a specific topic like gorillas, or knights and castles!  Fun reading books for kids ages 6 – 11!

I am really excited to feature these books today.  I received Hammerheads and More and Knights and Castles from Bright Connections Media – A World Book Encyclopedia Company in exchange for a review on the titles.  We mostly know World Book for their encyclopedias, but I am thrilled to know that they recently released this package of books for children.

Although I am reviewing individual books, the books are for sale as a package. Visit the Bright Connections Media website for more information and to purchase the books.


Book Description:  
Hammerheads and More:
Kids will be delighted to find out the wild facts about sharks in Hammerheads and More!

Number of Books: 8
Grade Level: K-5

My Thoughts:
Hammerheads and More
is a professionally designed, quality book that contains enough information about hammerheads and other sharks to keep your child engrossed for a good long time.  It is full of fun and interesting facts about sharks.  For example, did you know that it is common for sharks to swallow entire rows of their own teeth?

I had a difficult time getting through this book because I had to pry it out of my children’s sleeping fingers or try to slip it out from under their pillows long enough to read it. If you have a shark lover in your family, this book is perfect. It has quality paper and great photographs.  The writing is engaging and offers lots of information about these mysterious creatures. The only thing I would change is to have a few more pictures on each page so that we could see the sharks from different angles.

Word of advice: don’t read this to your three year old and then tell them that the sharks live at the beach you frequently visit…even if it’s true.

If you are a librarian, parent, or teacher, you should consider purchasing this Learning Package from Bright Connections Media.  The books are educational, professional, and will provide your child with an enriching learning experience.  I was really impressed with this book!
