How many times do you find yourself on the way out the door to a birthday party and you have to stop and buy a gift before you go? If you are like me, you are a last minute shopper. I try to keep non-gender specific gifts on hand just for these instances. National Geographic Kids books make a great gift idea. National Geographic Kids gave me a copy of each of these titles to facilitate this post and giveaway. This post contains Amazon affiliate links.
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 are waiting for just about anything.
As a homeschooling family, we often use National Geographic books as a supplement to our science and social studies curriculum. These books are jam-packed with great information that children and adults will enjoy, making them the perfect gift.
Here are some of my top pics:
