Read on for more info about the book, a coupon code, and info about how you can win the entire book series on my social channels!

Disclosure: I received the Explorer Academy series from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) in exchange for an honest review. Compensation was provided and this post may contain affiliate links. But what do I always say? I would never recommend something to you unless I totally loved it myself, and The Explorer Academy Series gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from my family!

Series Summary

I'm always in search of a good book series for tweens (this one is recommended for ages 8-12), and Explorer Academy from National Geographic Kids is a great new find! Author Trudi Trueit introduces us to 12-year old Cruz Coronado. Adventure, danger, and a thrilling global mission await Cruz when he joins an elite school for explorers. Cruz leaves behind his home in Hawaii to begin a new and exciting educational adventure with a diverse group of friends who help him uncover the secrets in his family's past. 

While at Explorer Academy, Cruz discovers that his late mother was involved in mysterious, dangerous activities due to her research. In between trying to complete his school assignments (which consist of traveling, virtual reality, submarines and other amazing tasks!) Cruz also has to deal with a strange organization that seems to be after him. Cruz is a lovable character because he's imperfect. He makes mistakes and even poor decisions at times, but he also has a big heart- he loves his family and his friends, and he wants to do his best while at the academy. 

About National Geographic Kids

National Geographic Kids is a name I know and trust as a parent. When you pick up a National Geographic Kids book, you know it's going to be good, right? The Explorer Academy series is no exception. National Geographic Kids has been inspiring kids to love and explore the world (and the universe!) for generations with their award winning books, magazines, websites, television series, apps, games, puzzles, and more. Each book in the Explorer Academy series incorporates STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and geography concepts into the storyline. As a former teacher, I can tell you that they're a great classroom addition, too, since there are so many ways you could link these books to current curriculums.

My son is 12 and we read the Explorer Academy series together (yes, together! We both read it so we could discuss. It's like our own private book club). As a former teacher and current momma, here's what I love about this series:

-filled with fun and mystery that keeps the reader interested
-characters are diverse and likable (Emmett is my favorite character- I loved his emoto glasses)
-color illustrations throughout, as well as short chapters (this is great for reluctant readers!)
- real life facts about the world are incorporated throughout, encouraging a love of exploration and scientific discovery.
