Guests of SEA LIFE® Aquarium at LEGOLAND® California Resort can now take a splash in the ocean without ever getting wet and become a shark explorer! SEA LIFE® Aquarium has 2 new exhibits: Sea at Night and Shark Mission! Open just in time for spring break, both exhibits allow guests to learn about marine life in a fun and interactive way.sea-life-aquarium-new-exhibit-1Sea at Night invites guests to jump, leap and “splash” into simulated bioluminescent waves that react to their footsteps. The reaction created by the guests’ movements demonstrates the effect of a glowing tide similar to ones often seen along the Pacific coastline.

Shark Mission allows kids to come face to fin with six different species of sharks and rays on three giant touch screens. Young explorers can learn about anatomy, conservation and other cool facts through interactive activities and games. Guests can also hold a shark’s tooth, learn about shark skin and eggs, plus step into a shark cage.

D.E. Night’s Novel “The Crowns of Croswald” + Enter to Win a Magical Walt Disney World Vacation

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

There’s nothing quite so magical as entering into the world of reading. As a mom and a teacher, the love of reading is something I’ve strived to instill in both my daughter and my students. For me, reading is a great escape from reality and a way to “unplug” from the outside world.t’s also a way to open up and expand your imagination.

the-crowns-of-croswald-1I find myself always on the lookout for new young adult titles for my tween to get into. She loves books from all genres but most recently she’s chosen to read several fantasy novels. I’m just happy she’s developed such a love for literature and I want to keep fostering it. Her most recent book was “The Crowns of Croswald” by author D.E.Night, which was something we sat down and read together.crowns-of-croswald-in-croswaldHere’s a sneak peek you can find on the back cover of the book:
For sixteen years Ivy Lovely has been hidden behind an enchanted boundary that separates the mundane from the magical. When Ivy crosses the border, her powers awaken.
Curiosity leads her crashing through a series of adventures at the Halls of Ivy, a school where students learn to master their magical blood and the power of Croswald’s mysterious gems.
When Ivy’s magic – and her life – is threatened by the Dark Queen, she scrambles to unearth her history and save Croswald before the truth is swept away forever.

You can also read an excerpt from the prologue here:
crowns-of-croswald-prologue
Both my daughter and I loved “Crowns of Croswald” because of the magic and the fantasy of the story. It’s a great read and something we enjoyed taking the time to read and discuss.
