Did you know that two months of reading skills are LOST over the summer and that it can take up to two months from the first day of school for a student’s brain development to get back on track? “Summer Slide” is very real and has lasting repercussions that can impact a student’s long-term academic performance.
It can be hard to find books that encourage your child to read daily. That is why I LOVE National Geographic books for kids. We have quite a few from the series and these are always at the top of our list for gift ideas for birthdays and Christmas.
The books are fun and easy to read with vibrant images and easy to digest material that normally spans no longer than a two page spread in the book. Making the books easy to pick up and put down, perfect for car rides, doctor’s office visits or when they area waiting for just about anything.
The Nat Geo Kids Almanac 2018 (ages 8-12, $14.99) has a fantastic selection of facts that are sure to spark your child’s imagination and thirst for knowledge.
