Now that the holidays are here, people are scrambling to find the perfect gifts for those on their holiday shopping list.
Something that people might now always consider as a holiday gift are books. Personally, I LOVE books. If someone gifted me a gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble I’d be happy. There are plenty of books that I would love to read.
I think that books make great gifts for children too. Even “reluctant readers” can enjoy a good book that doesn’t necessarily have to be a reading book. There are plenty of books out there that are educational as well as comics and graphic novels.
Are you familiar with books from National Geographic Kid? We own many of their books and I have donated many of them to the classrooms where I’ve worked.
National Geographic Kids teaches kids about the world and how it works, empowering them to succeed and make it a better place. It is the only kids brand with a scientific, education, and conservation organization at its core.
National Geographic Kids is the #1 publisher of nonfiction books for kids, producing more than 100 titles per year. From board books to leveled readers to almanacs to our wildly popular Weird but True series, we’ve got books for every young reader on your list.
National Geographic Kids sent me a few of their new books to check out for myself. They might be geared towards children, but as an adult I find them very enjoyable. Even I learn A LOT from reading them.
Here are the books that I was sent to review.
Find fascinating knowledge nuggets on all kinds of cool topics, from bubble gum and ice cream to the outer space and the North Pole! This book offers hours of unplugged fun for curious kids who love to be the trivia expert in the family. (Ages 8-12)
Get inspired for the year ahead with the most popular kids’ almanac on the planet! It features 350+ pages of incredible photos, fun facts, news, activities, and features about animals, science, exploration, technology, culture, and more. (Ages 8-12)
The second annual Almanac Newsmaker Challenge invites kids create a time capsule for kids in 2050 that shows what life is like today. Just gather up to 10 “artifacts,” photograph it, and share it on My Shot, the Nat Geo Kids online photo community. Get the details at: natgeokids.com/almanac.
Kids love Weird But True! The latest, greatest in this endlessly fascinating series – now with more than 20 titles – is full of 300 all-new wild and wacky facts and pictures. (Ages 8-12)
I’m not exaggerating when I say as an adult, I find these books fascinating. I’ve learned A LOT from these books.
What I love about these books that they are very engaging. They have colorful photos to go along with all the amazing facts. Even if your child is still in the early stages of reading they can still enjoy the great photos found in each of the books.
These are fun books… but at the same time they are educational.
These would make great holiday gifts. As a mom I would certainly gift my children these books.
