National Geographic Kids

Got kids who love science, nature and discovery?  Check out this review of three of the newest National Geographic Kids books.  

My second son Andrew absolutely loves to read Non-Fiction books.  He is always exploring what makes things work and loves learning especially about animals.   When National Geographic Kids offered me this review of three of their kids books, I was thinking this would be a great gift for my explorer son.

About National Geographic Kids!

Little kids and picture books go together like peanut butter and jelly. But what happens when they feel they are too "big" for picture books -- what's next? Keeping kids ages 8-12 reading is critical to developing a lifelong passion for books. National Geographic Kids Books has mastered the art of keeping tweens' noses in a book with fun, high interest topics; big, bold graphics and pictures; and pages packed with cool information that they love to stump their parents with (I say this from personal experience!). This Spring, National Geographic Kids debuts three tween-approved titles that are guaranteed to make kids want to turn off the device, crack open a book and look at the world around them in a whole new light.

The Review

We got these three books from National Geographic Kids, The World Atlas, What in the World and 100 things to do before you grow up to try out in our home.

The World Atlas:  This one is my son's favorite.  Each page features a map, fun facts and 5 cool things to do in the area.  Each page has beautiful photos and pictures of the local wildlife.  My husband had just visited Germany and we showed Andrew photos of where he went. Andrew asked to go with him to see the Neuschwanstein Castle in the future. This book is a great way for kids, who's parents travel, to see some of the places there parents are going. It gives them something interesting to talk about on the phone while they are away.  I'm sure Andrew has his own wish list of places to travel and things to do while he is there, thanks to this book.  My son loved the games and activities to do as well.

What In The World: Think puzzle book, you can explore animals close up, look at optical illusions, find differences in photos, looking for patterns, and hidden animals.   This a fun book your kids will enjoy looking at over and over.  My daughter Lilly really likes this one. She loved looking for the lists of things to find.  Andrew says this is his second pick for the books.  He still can't put that Atlas down.

100 Things To Do Before You Grow Up: Think of it as a giant to do list of fun activities.  I was inspired by the idea of doing these fun things with my kids.  Thinks like catch lightning bugs, learn sign language, and an interview  with your grandparents.  There is still 97 more fun things to do.  Andrew read through this one once and was done with it.  We had done a great deal of the activities with him. He says, "It's just a list".
