National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Why
As parents, we are all well aware and acquainted with the never-ending quest of answering “WHY?”. But wonderful as it is to watch our ever-curious kids look into the world with such inquisitive minds, it’s a lot easier to cater to their thirst for discovery in a book. Not just any book though! In “National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Why” children are encouraged by playful exploration. With stunningly beautiful and vibrant photographs kids love to delve into a number of fun and broad topics that are super kid-friendly. The content is presented in question and answer form, piquing interest about why certain things are the way they are. Additionally, there are countless recipes, crafts, and activities attached to the explanations to keep the wheels spinning long after reading about and finding the answer of “why?”
National Geographic Kids Almanac 2021
National Geographic Kids Almanac 2021 is a spectacle for the eyes and the mind. This is chock full of the neatest information about anything you can really imagine. Amazing animals, beautiful places, science and technology, space exploration, world history, I mean really the list goes on and on. What stands out for me and is unique in this book is that it really has something to caters to every topic a child can think to be interested in. My daughters and I enjoyed this book by randomly picking a number and going to that page, and they got to explore whatever topic happened to be on that page. This Almanac provides the most up to date details and examinations about our ever-changing world. It even includes a whole chapter of activities, games, jokes, and comics perfect to keep the kids engaged through and through. Even though this is a “kids” almanac I had much fun myself looking through the astonishing photos of the wonderful planet we live on and all of the fascinating features of this world.
The Explorer Academy series
The Explorer Academy series is a thrilling set of books meant for the keenest of adventurers. This series is best suited for those kids in grades 3-8. Having read these myself I can attest that these are very much age appropriate and super engaging for any child who is into adventure, exploration, mystery, and thrill. Something very notable is the fact that there are characters in this book from all walks of life, all colors, and all ethnicities. Kids then get a chance to see a birds-eye view of the world from different perspectives which is very important in today’s world. What stood out to me the most, though, was how accurately researched all of the information and clues in this book are. For a young adult book, this has everything perfectly and precisely laid out and uses authentic locations from the real world. How fun is it to be able to literally explore the world in an adventure through reading! Even the science they used in the books to formulate the fictional ideas were explained at the end of the book by National Geographic scientists. I could not be more impressed by this series and cannot wait for the next series!
