The Nebula Secret (Explorer Academy, #1)The Nebula Secret by Trudi Trueit
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#FirstLine ~ "Cruz!"

This book is so great for kids. It is a wild and action-packed adventure that kids (and parents) will love. I adore that The Nebula Secret is book one of seven to be released in this series brand new Explorer Academy Series. The book is based on real-life science, exploration and mission of the National Geographic Society. This is what sets Nat Geo apart from others. With the action packed adventure, code breaking and exploration this group of students will attend the Explorers Academy and get to really dive into a thrilling quest. All kids will be able to relate to the characters, will get immersed in the science and will love traveling the world. This series will be a hit and we cannot wait to continue on the adventures.

This book is quite speculator! Within this amazing book there are hundreds of photos of some of the coolest things about predators.

The chapters are: Discovering Predators, Predatory Mammals, Predatory Birds, Predatory Reptiles and Amphibians, Predatory Fish and Predatory Invertebrates. When this book arrived my son was instantly reading it bouncing from topic to topic...all I heard was "Did you know that...." followed by some amazing factoids and "Wow, look at this..." followed by me looking at some crazy cool things. These are the type of books that capture the attention of young readers because they have amazing vibrant photos and fun facts. I love that I can trust that my child will be learning interesting and important facts and that their attention will be captured over the winter with this book. Every time you open it up you read you learn something new. This will be a staple read for my boys over the winter!
