I’ll be honest. I practically begged Moms Meet to select me for this program! As a homeschooling parent, I am always looking for really great educational books for my daughters. I never struggle with getting rid of “stuff” in our house until it comes to books. Save all the books! National Geographic kids is so cool, and I literally jumped up and down when I saw that I got selected to share this with you. The pictures in their books are so incredible. The facts and information that they give are wildly entertaining. I also never knew that there were Nat Geo kids novels!
The National Geographic Kids Almanac is the most popular kids almanac on the planet. It is such a great boredom buster for your kids! Even if they aren’t at the age for reading, the pictures will captivate them. Did you know that a group of leopards is called a leap? The almanac is filled with all kinds of fun facts like this. Kids are invited to participate in the Lions Forever Almanac Challenge for a chance to win a $500 gift card to host a lion conservation party! You can head to natgeokids.com/almanac for more information on this opportunity. The contest ends on December 3, 2018. The website is full of really cool videos, games, and extra information.
The almanac is so visually eye catching. It is presented in a way that there is something for every kid. It’s such a great addition to our homeschool library!

My daughters are 8, 6, and 4 years old. My 8 and 6 year old loved it. We read a chapter before bed each nigh. It was obviously too advanced for my four year old, but she would come and go enjoying parts of the story.
I have found myself reading the Weird but True book. I brought them over one day that I was babysitting my nephews. The seven year old didn’t want to go to bed because he wanted to continue reading. I went to a football game with his family and brought the 2019 Almanac for him to look at (because most 7 year olds don’t want to watch a football game or cheerleaders). He was quiet as a mouse reading through the Almanac.
This girl was so excited to pick up this National Geographic Kids book from the book fair. She kept jumping up and down, and I gave up on getting a clear picture of the whole cover. ha!
I encourage you to pick up any National Geographic Kids book that strikes your fancy. They are all so incredibly well done and get two thumbs up from all five members of our family!
