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:
* Ultimate Globetrotting World Atlas Discovering the world and all that's in it will take on a whole new level of excitement for kids with this bold and vibrant world atlas. It's full of fun facts, fascinating information, easy-to-read maps, lots of games, and vibrant pictures of everything from wacky hotels around the world to natural and man made wonders. Kids will be presented with people, places, and animals that span the globe while being engaged and entertained.
* What In the World?
This is THE to-do list for any adventurous kid who is not afraid to get his or her hands dirty! They always say time flies when you're having fun, maybe that's why your prime kid-years seem to sail by in a heartbeat. Are you living it to the fullest? Well, here's an awesome way to find out. In this book you'll find ideas, hints, and tips for things that you can (and should!) do before you're too old to get away with it. Ever snorkeled at a coral beach? Stayed up all night? Well, now's the time! It's also never a bad idea to apologize to a friend, make a new friend of a different race or religion, or start your own business! Complete with expert tips from real life adventurers, weird-but-true facts, and profiles of some of the coolest kid-jobs on the planet, this book is just the start of your amazing, exciting, wonderful life!
Long before DD was able to read on her own, we began to purchase books for her. Over the years, we have acquired quite a collection of books for her. Out of the hundreds of books she has in her little library, the books she reach for over and over again are the books published by National Geographic Kids. I must admit that I never thought these would be the books my daughter would enjoy so much, after all, she is not a kid who loves science. When I asked her why she liked these books so much, she explained that she thought that all of the National Geographic Kids books were so interesting. She enjoyed learning interesting facts and she was always really excited about sharing her new knowledge with her friends. She also liked to look at all of the amazing photos in these books. Not surprisingly, she was very happy to add 3 more National Geographic Kids Books to her little library. Personally, I think these books are great as well. If we are traveling long distance, I would pack one of two of them to keep my kids entertained. Of course, they also make great gifts for other kids.
