We are a family of readers. We love to read. I'm so happy and so thankful that my kiddos truly enjoy reading. I really do believe that books are the gateway to a world full of knowledge, imagination, adventures and learning.
That said, when I was given the opportunity by Moms Meet Blogger to do a review on National Geographic Kids Books, my answer was an immediate yes!
We have been National Geographic fans and have subscribed to their magazines for many many years. My oldest daughter has had a subscription to their kids magazine and eagerly awaits each new issue. Our whole family likes the beautiful pictures and the interesting knowledge they share. We expected great things from the box of books, and we were not disappointed.

It can often be hard to make nonfiction, factual information appealing to kids. As a teacher and a mom of three, I know that all too well. National Geographic did a wonderful job with these books. Honestly, these books are gorgeous.
There are full color illustrations, pictures, and photographs in every book, and they are very appealing to kids. My kids have been engrossed in the books since they arrived. Reading aloud, sharing fun facts about animals, and curling up for quiet moments on the couch. My oldest, Kaylee, loves all the odd facts. It's so fun to listen to her exclaim over the weird things she's reading. My middle child, Isabelle, loves the cute, cuddly animal pictures. It's heartwarming to listen to her aww and coo over the photos. And my youngest, Lilah, well...she looks flipping the pages. Ha!
But seriously - the information packed into these pages! You won't believe the things your kids will learn. I'm loving it! I would highly recommend these books to all families with kids. I have no doubt your children will love National Geographic as much as mine do!
