We almost always have a subscription to the National Geographic KidsMagazine. Most recently though, my girls have spent a lot of time of the past few weeks checking out two awesome books from National Geographic Kids.
- Weird But True: 300 Outrageous Facts (National Geographic Kids)
- National Geographic Kids Almanac 2011
The Weird But True: 300 Outrageous Facts (National Geographic Kids) is filled with tons of fun facts that kids will enjoy learning and sharing. This is a great reference book for kids.
As with all National Geographic publications, the images are amazing! Some of the greatest photographers are featured in these publications. The talent is great! These photos keep my kids interested, from my 4 year old all the way up to my 12 year old.
The National Geographic Kids Almanac has more than 500 photographs and over 300 pages of detailed information, crafts, games, jokes, and recipes. It has everything kids want to know about everything.
