National Geographic Kids Must-Have Books ~Give Away~

With my boys getting older by the minutes it’s become increasingly hard to find reading material that holds there interest. This is disappointing to me especially since they had a great passion for reading at one point. I had to redirect myself from thinking about books in a traditional sense and think about things from my boys’ level. That is when I heard about two must-have books for kids(ages 8-12) from NationalGeographic Kids.



books



Are you wondering what makes these books must-haves?  Just check out their titles, 5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) and That's Gross: Icky Facts That Will Test Your Gross-Out Factor. I bet you understand their appeal to my boys now. If it’s gross, they love it and since they already think they know it all, now they can back it up with some quick facts.

Both books would make an excellent gift this holiday season or even for Halloween, and here is why:

5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!):   This book is literally busting its covers with fascinating, fun-tastic facts on super, sensational topics that kids love. Who knew that there were so many sweet things to learn about chocolate or that a dozen delicious details about peanut butter would show up on a page with a few splotches of jelly to whet our appetites? Keep turning and a terrifyingly toothy shark tells  you all about himself, while other spreads lay out tons of tips on toys and games, mysteries of history, robots and reptiles, sports and spies and wacky words.   A visual feast of colorful photographs surrounded  by swirling, tipping, expanding, and climbing bits of information in a high-energy design, this book will satisfy both the casual browser and the truly fact obsessed.

That's Gross: Icky Facts that Will Test Your Gross-Out Factor: This book is to be read at your own risk!   Bringing together the slimiest, smelliest, and stickiest topics imaginable, That's Gross is chock-full of foul facts that are guaranteed to make your stomach churn. Each chapter is packed with icky information, wacky and colorful pictures and sickening sidebars that will make you say "That's Gross!" Kids should hold on to your stomach while they explore the world of barf, bugs, boogers, and other things disgusting things. With lively and humorous prose, high-interest subjects, and truly disgusting photos, this book will have kids glued to the page while they learn the facts, history and scientific details of "eww". Kids will be so captivated by the gross-out factor that they won't even realize how much they're learning.  They might even discover that these skin-crawling truths are just a part of everyday life!

Created in a way only Nat Geo Kids can do, 5000 Awesome Facts is a must have for any home collection and has already proved useful for school too! And while you wouldn’t think things that are gross are useful, National Geographic explains in a matter that grabs kids’ attention facts and functions of life that many might wonder about. For example take “The Scoop on Poop” - Ew, right!? But kids’ minds work in mysterious ways and Poop is funny to them.  In the segment they learn why we Poop. A clever way to teach, while catering to a child’s silly side.

Buy It: These books can be found on both Amazon.com and at Barnes & Noble

My eight year old daughter who is the most inquisitive child I know. I thought the questioning and demanding answers on how everything works phase would be over now but she still needs to know how everything is made and how it works. These books would peak her interest immediately.
