National Geographic Kids Holiday Gift Ideas + Giveaway

#NatGeoKidsBooks National Geographic Kids books

This is a National Geographic Kids sponsored post.

Have you ever read one of the National Geographic Kids books? They are geared towards kids ages 8-12, but I love them! The facts are interesting, the pages are filled with full color photos and it’s written in plain english so it makes sense.

When my 12-year-old daughter saw the books on the kitchen table, she squealed, grabbed all three and sat down for a few hours pouring over them. Every page I heard, “Mom, look at this.”

What is National Geographic Kids?

  • National Geographic Kids teaches kids about the world and how it works.
  • National  Geographic Kids is the #1 publisher of nonfiction books for kids, producing more than 100 titles per year.
