Celebrate With a National Geographic Kids Birthday Gift Prize Pack (Review & Giveaway)

I have always encouraged my children to look at books and read, even when they were toddlers.  Books let their imaginations run free and take them to places unknown.  Books also fill their minds with knowledge and facts that will fuel them for life!

Growing up, I remember reading and looking through looking through my Dad's National Geographic books and loved them.  When my kids were young, I was introduced to National Geographic Kids books and instantly fell in love. 


Whether you're  shopping for a specific birthday celebration or wanting to refresh your “stash” of birthday gifts you keep on hand for those last-minute party invites, books from National Geographic Kids are a slam dunk choice — fun, budget-friendly, kid and parent approved and great for both boys and girls.
