Newest National Geographic Kids Books


My two kiddos love to learn and they love to read. To say they were excited about the newest National Geographic Kids books would be a huge understatement!


I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.


Moms Meet recently sent us one of the funnest packages with books for both my kids and myself. Although, the "mom" book is actually going to be included in one of our teacher care packages this year, my kids were ecstatic about the newest National Geographic Kids books as well as the Explorer Academy chapter book. 

Both of my kiddos have subscriptions to the Nat Geo Kids magazines and always love learning about animals and collecting the cards that usually come inside each month. Both the National Geographic Kids Almanac as well as Weird But True are full of so many fun facts. My children are becoming picky about what they like to read. If it isn't fun it won't hold their attention long. Especially my daughter. She's kind of at an age where she thinks reading isn't cool anymore, or is boring compared to playing her iPad. Obviously, this is a huge change for us because she's always loved to read, ever since she was 2 years old. As a matter of fact, both of my kiddos were reading at age 2. So they do get bored pretty quickly with books that are typically in their age group.




This is one of the main reasons I love the Nat Geo Kids books. They get them reading, learning, and having fun while doing it! They will sit for hours and read fun facts back and forth to each other, which makes me so happy. In addition, these books, while marketed towards children, aren't specifically for them and can be enjoyed by adults as well. I admit that I had enjoyed learning things I , myself, had not known. The pages in both books are fully colored and designed in a fun way to hold interest. Even little ones who cannot read yet, will enjoy looking at all the full colored photos.  

Explorer Academy: The Nebula Secret is also a fun book for children ages 8-12. Basically, it's a Nat Geo book for middle grade children and has more of a story to it rather than fun facts. It's a thrilling adventure where a 12 year old boy as well as 23 other kids go to a special school where they train to become the next great explorers. In this story, the main character is trying to unlock various clues into his family's past (his mother died in a mysterious lab accident) and find out who is out to get him because he soon learns that you can't trust everyone. The Nat Geo Explorer Academy website is extremely cool as well because you can learn more about the characters, play games, unlock codes, and even win a trip!
