With the Holiday shopping season upon us, I am always looking for gifts that keep on giving. Toys lose their novelty, and often get tossed to the side to collect dust once the Holidays are through. Socks and underwear are great, but kids like to have fun, and well....Clothing just isn't for many children.
I think my daughter is the exception, as she actually wants clothing now. Guess this may be a preview of the teen years.
One gift I always try to give is the gift of knowledge. National Geographic Kids impressive collection of books are always at the top of our gift lists, since these books are creative, packed full of facts that are presented in a vivid, kid-friendly way, and they help supplement our homeschool instruction, too!
Our favorite books from National Geographic Kids would have to be their absolutely epic Weird But True! series. These books are just what they sound like, as they teach kids things that seem so weird that they couldn't possibly be real, but ARE. Each book comes with awesome pictures and 350 mind-blowing facts!
Entertaining and brain bending facts, coupled with visually stunning and eye popping photos and graphics, are the reason why the 35+ titles in the National Geographic Kids Weird But True! book franchise are considered the gold standard in educational, entertaining books for kids. With over 5 million copies sold, published in over 15 different languages, and featuring a broad range of topics from science to food to pop culture, Weird But True! books nab kids’ attention and get them reading.
Now, with the release of the 10th book in the Weird But True! main series, things just got WEIRDER and it’s time to celebrate!
Weird But True! 10 (ages 8-12, $8.99) is the latest release in the main Weird But True! series and books 1-9 has been refreshed and expanded to include 50 MORE facts than the original releases (that’s 350 facts per book if you are counting!)!
Did you know that ears are self-cleaning, or that itching is contagious? It's all totally weird ... but true!
Each of the ten books of this main series contains 350 surprising and amazing facts about topics like science, space, weather, geography, food, pop culture, and just about everything else under the sun, presented with fascinating photos and illustrations.
Not pictured but also available is the Weird But True! Christmas ages (8-12, $8.99) - A bit different than the main Weird But True! series, this title is focused on one theme — spreading holiday cheer with festive far-out facts about Christmas! Makes a terrific stocking stuffer.
Weird But True! Cool and Crazy Sticker Doodle Book (ages 8-12, $12.99) - Get ready for even more DO-IT-YOURSELF weirdness in the latest Weird But True! Sticker Doodle title. With each turn of the page kids learn new information and get to try new wacky activities, from doodling prompts to crosswords, mazes to picture puzzles.
This book unleashes kids' creativity in a uniquely Nat Geo Kids way. Discover amazing weird facts and then doodle, draw, or color away right on the page. Did you know that some American soldiers once rode camels instead of horses? Draw some other unexpected animal mounts! Did you know that some ice-cream trucks serve scoops just for dogs? Create some other gourmet masterpieces for your canine companion. Enhance your wacky masterpieces with 150 fun stickers included in the book.
Let your kids’ creativity run wild for hours on end in this perfect boredom-buster for rainy days, car rides, or any time.
Weird But True! Know-It-All Greek Mythology (ages 8-12, $12.99)
The newest in the WBT book family, WBT Know-It-All focuses on a specific topics structured into profiles. Weird But True! Know-It-All Greek Mythology includes everything kids need to know about all their favorite Greek gods, heroes, monsters, quests, muses, and famous philosophers. From who gave mankind fire to famous fatal flaws to who stood guard at the Underworld, this book includes all the iconic Greek myths and key characters — and then goes one wonderfully weird step beyond.
My kids absolutely LOVE these latest editions of National Geographic Kids WBT! series. We especially love the Greek Mythology book and the activity packed Cool and Crazy Sticker Doodle Book. These, as well as the WBT! volumes 1-10, have kept my kids reading, giggling, and learning. It's a win-win for our family!
Definitely check these out as you complete your Holiday shopping!
