National Geographic Children's Books Summer Boredom Busters Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

Winning comment is #72!
What are you doing to keep your kids entertained this summer? I remember when I was a kid, I really enjoyed doing a lot of fun summer readings. National Geographic Kids has a set of books that's so fun to read that even you will read them. You might not believe it but when I received the National Geographic Children's Books to review, I actually read them myself -- hey, they were fast and fun reads ;). DD is too young to read them, but she really enjoys looking through all of the photos and then she would ask me to read each section for her. I was pleasantly surprised by the type of information she has been learning from the books just from me reading aloud to her.
If your kids are older, they will be able to read these books on their own and keep themselves entertained by learning interesting facts.

Want to check out these books too? National Geographic Kids has generously offered the same 3 books we received to review as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).

* 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.
