Since its arrival at my door there have been many afternoon/evening quizzing sessions that have taken place between my kids and their Aunt, Cousin, Grandparents, and Daddy. It often turns into a comedic experience that everyone enjoys. The questions are interesting facts that
every child everyone loves learning about.
My favorite two lines in this book are “The best part of this book is it doesn’t matter if anyone gets the answers right. The reward is in the challenge.”
Sticker Activity Books:
National Geographic Kids has several new Sticker Activity Books available. My future veterinarian really enjoyed Amazing Pets while my “all about oceans and space preschooler” has taken over Super Space. Each book has over 1,000 stickers for the kids to enjoy. The pages are fun-sheet styled with each page containing activities, games or puzzles.
All of the topics and facts listed in each book relate to the subject title. Amazing Pets contains facts on popular breeds and weird pet information – everything from bunnies to reptiles and creepy crawlies. Super Science contains information on Planets, all things Space related, plus information on anything that might be affected by Space, such as, the Earth’s oceans and climate.
We love fill-in sheets and themed activity workbooks and use them in our homeschool weekly. National Geographic Kids has modernized the traditional fill-in with colorful pages and illustrations that correspond with each fill-in story. We received a Funny Fill-In for each of our bigger bunch to enjoy: My Pirate Adventure, My Pet Adventure, My Dinosaur Adventure, and My Medieval Adventure.
My family enjoyed all of the National Geographic Kids books we received. They offer several different styles of books to appeal to any level of learner you have. All five of my children have taken over a book and called it their own – even baby girl who turns everyone into sticker princesses when she takes over the Sticker Activity Books. You can never go wrong with Nat Geo Kids!
