Team Narwal Kids

"Tails and Tales" summer reading games may be over, but we'll love that narwhal mascot for life! If you’re not ready for the end and want to learn more about narwhals, we can help!

Did you know that you have access to World Book Online with your library card? World Book Online helps you find answers and learn at any reading level––both at school and at home! You can find info on narwhals here! Did you know that the narwhal’s tusk is actually a long tooth?! You can also find resources for early literacy, student research, beginner’s Spanish language tools, eBooks, and more!

 

Fact Tracker: Narwals and other Whales Perhaps you’re already familiar with Mary Pope Osborne’s popular Magic Tree House series, but did you know about the nonfiction companions to her fantastical first chapter books? You can find the fact tracker companion to book #33, Narwhal on a Sunny Night, in our juvenile nonfiction collection! Dig deeper into facts about narwhals after reading about Jack and Annie’s exciting rescue mission! 

 

Unusual Creatures Interested in all kinds of weird animals, including narwhals? Check out Micheal Hearst’s Unusual Creatures: A Mostly Accurate Account of Some of Earth’s Strangest Creatures. Funny and fun to look at, this book will appeal to a variety of ages! 

 

Narwal and JellyAnd finally, for the graphic novel enthusiasts, be sure to check out the Narwhal and Jelly series by Ben Clanton. Less about narwhals and more about friendship, these books are silly and heartwarming, which is something we could all use more of!
