Are you looking for an entertaining yet educational gift for a young reader this year? I love giving books and encouraging kids to get off the apps and to read a book!!! It’s something I do every year whenever I am able. I have a great recommendation for you, and Liam seriously loves it.

National Geographic Kids teaches kids about the world and how it works, empowering them to succeed and make it a better place. It is the only kids brand with a scientific, education, and conservation organization at its core.

  6. We love National Geographic. When our boys were little we tried National Geographic Kids. But we found that they preferred the “adult” version.

    Yes, I love these books. I believe that books are a great source of educational information that all kids need to experience as it will take them farther in life by reading and soaking up all of the newly learned information. My granddaughter loves to read and she is like a “sponge” when she reads to learn about something of interest.
