Back to School with National Geographic for Kids + Giveaway

Thanks to National Geographic Kids for this set of  books for the review & giveaway

Welcome to the Looking Forward to Fall Giveaway Hop, hosted by Viva Veltoro and Lindsey Blogs. Summer is coming to a close, school is starting soon and it’s time to start looking forward to Fall. Each blogger in this Event has a giveaway worth at least $25 – so be sure to hop around to them all below!

National Geographic's magazine for the younger set: an appealing mix of articles on wildlife, entertainment, science, technology, extreme sports, adventures, amazing kids, and world wonders.

Our oldest daughter will be eight in October and she loves to read. She reads every night to unwind and her choices range from The Bible, to little picture books. When I got the chance to review new books from National Geographic, I was thrilled to get some new reading material in the house! 

My favorite part about this review is there is something for each one of our girls. Since they range in age from 20 months-7 1/2, it's nice to have something they can look at, read, and share among all of them. 

I was most excited for these different level reader books because of our older girls in school. While Madison is in second grade and can read any of them, McKenzie is in first grade and reading doesn't come quite as easy to her. It's nice that she can have books to learn to read and grow in the different levels as she gets better and expands her reading skills! 

My book worm Madison loves reading chapter books and often gets them from the library as her choice of book to check out for a few weeks, so she was excited to see new chapter books in her presence. I love how they're real stories and feature amazing animals which expands her mind and lets her learn as she's enjoying reading. 

These last two sets of books come in handy for our younger girls. Since they're a couple months shy of 2, and then 3 yrs old, they're all about fun picture books. Baby animals are always cute and it gives us fun time to explore and learn different animals, and then the hard books are great for our toddler to carry around and flip through at her leisure. She likes these the most because I let her walk around with them and look through on her own which makes her feel independent, but I know she won't harm them because they're made of good thick board to hold up well with wear and tear of kiddos. 

Overall these books range in price from $4-$7 and they're amazing for ages 2+. National Geographic is great about teaching children new things, exploring, and providing amazing material over all when encouraging children to have fun and read. They're by far worth the money you'll spend and I recommend them to anyone with children! 

These 11 books retail all together for $48 and you can purchase them from National Geographic Kids store or Amazon. You can also connect with National Geographic Kids via their websiteFacebook and Twitter
