Croc Capers review and a big giveaway!


 Bindi Irwin has a new book! This is the 7th entry in her Wildlife Adventures series and it's filled with the typical fun animal facts and the cute mystery that Bindi and her brother Robert have to solve. This time, the mystery surrounds crocodiles and some strange campers!

A quick and easy read, the story is an excellent intro to mysteries for young readers and has great facts about crocodiles woven in. Learning while reading...imagine that! Included in the back of the book is more information on becoming a Wildlife Warrior, which may appeal to the animal lover in your life or to the kids in your class or library.

Bindi Irwin is a great role model for young girls and she juts keeps getting better and better. She's smart, curious, and definitely adventurous like her father, the late Steve Irwin. Even if your children have never heard of Steve Irwin and his awesome animal adventures, they'll still appreciate Bindi and her manner of teaching them about animals, while still giving them a cute story. Bits of non-fiction mixed with a fiction chapter book make a really great combination.

The amazing people at Sourcebooks are giving YOU a chance to win the ENTIRE SET of Wildlife Adventures books!! What a great holiday or birthday gift this would make for a special child in your life! 

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post by Sunday night and I'll choose a winner Monday morning. Please make sure I have a way to contact you! U.S. and Canada only please.
