As the proud mama of 2 preschoolers, I know first hand that kids are curious about everything. Literally. Not a day goes by that Sophie and Xander don't ask me about a million questions about everything from why the sky is blue to why spiders have a ton of eyes. And of course, everything in between as well.
Of course, one of my go-to places for early learning is National Geographic Kids. As a 2014 NatGeo Kids Insider, we receive the magazine, as well as a wide variety of kids' educational books. The folks at National Geographic Kids are committed to providing children with products that truly make learning FUN. And we parents know, kids retain knowledge much more effectively when they're interested and engaged.
Recently, we received a great series of books specifically for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. The Look & Learn Series offers smaller kids the opportunity to learn about colors, shapes, the human body, baby animals, and more!
These are board books, which are incredibly durable and "kid-proof". There won't be any torn pages to worry about as clumsy little hands turn the pages. (This is a HUGE plus in my home, since my kids tend to play Tug O' War with books, and the results are usually disastrous!)
We have had a wonderful time checking out the Look & Learn Series. My littles already know their colors, shapes and numbers, but they still enjoyed these books. I can't blame them, since National Geographic Kids' books are always full of stunning, vibrant photography, like the cheery dolphins seen below!
One of our favorite books in this series would have to be the Baby Animals book. We love our furry friends, and the kids love seeing baby animals. They were actually quite fascinated to see the vast differences between adult animals and their young. For example, this adorable leopard baby looks so sweet and cuddly...The Mama? Well, not so much. She, too, is beautiful, but I would not want to be alone in a pen with her.
We also loved learning about the human body. Kids are always very curious about the many amazing things their bodies can do, like running, jumping, sneezing, walking, throwing, etc. The human body is absolutely amazing, and the All About Me book helps teach small children about their bodies and how their body parts work.
Overall, we're really enjoying the Look & Learn Series from National Geographic Kids. While my 3 and 4 year olds already know much of the material covered in these fun board books, they still love looking at them and sharing their knowledge. They have been having a blast counting, identifying shapes, and seeing the adorable baby animals. If you're the parent or grandparent of a small child, I would definitely recommend picking up a set of these books. Not only are they educational, they're tons of fun, too!
