Summer is over and school’s back in, but that doesn’t mean your kids can’t continue having fun, and do some learning too. National Geographic Kids has three new fun and educational books for your children; National Geographic Kids Almanac 2011, The Big Book of Fun and Weird But True!
Your kids will love the interesting facts inside these books, and they’ll be itching to head to school to amaze and stump their friends with the stuff they’ve learned. Animal fun, facts about the Earth, inventions and discoveries (haha, I was surprised to learn the parachute was invented before the airplane!), the human body and more.
* Weird But True – Based upon the hugely popular page in the National Geographic Kids magazine, kids will definitely say “wow!,” “cool!” and “gross!” as they flip through the 301 outrageous facts and learn, for instance, that peanut butter can be converted into a diamond, an elephants tooth can weigh as much as a bowling ball and a dog can make about 100 different facial expressions!
* The Big Book of Fun – Featuring National Geographic’s signature photography and vivid graphics, this interactive game book includes over 75 games, mazes, fill-in-the-blank stories, trivia tests and more.
* National Geographic Kids Almanac 2011 – Introduced last year and updated for 2011, this best-selling almanac has quickly become the gold standard. Kids will love the more than 50 puzzles, projects ands cool experiments, the 500 pictures of our planet and all that’s on it and the more than 5,000 fun and amazing facts. Parents will love it because its chapters on science, geography and history — plus more than 15 homework-helper sections — is a terrific way to kick-start their kids’ brains as the new school year approaches.
Amber totally loved the Weird But True! book. Every few minutes she’d be yelling to us from the other room a new thing she found interesting.
One note to my readers, while I really like National Geographic Kids, their style of engaging young readers in a fun way, and their amazing photos, their ‘facts’ about the Earth’s formation and age don’t align with a young-Earth Creation world view.
One reader will get a set of the National Geographic Kids books mentioned above.
Since much of the books are about animal facts, to enter the giveaway let me know your child’s favorite animal.
