National Geographic books are the perfect Christmas gift for curious kids. We always have four presents for our kids under the tree…want, need, wear and read. My favorite gift to give is read. I searched high and low for just the right book for each one of my boys. I have three energetic and curious boys who love to explore the world. With this years pandemic keeping us at home; it’s been hard to get out and explore the world in person. National Geographic is renowned for their efforts to explore and document the world in a way that helps to educate and inspire its readers.  National Geographic Kids Books are stuffed with interesting information, so here’s why they make the perfect stocking stuffers.


What I love most about National Geographic Kids Books is that they are packed full of interesting pictures and fun facts all inspired by authors, illustrators, photographers, explorers, and researchers that are dedicated to instilling a love of learning.  These kids books captivate young readers with vivid pictures and draw them in to read about the interesting facts. Another thing that I love about National Geographic books is the connection to earth. Topics of concern are often addressed and children are challenged to keep our planet safe and healthy for generations to come.  This year there are few new series that you will find gift worthy.
