National Geographic Kids: Explore the Outdoors (Review & Giveaway)


The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer!  It's finally time to shake off those winter blues and celebrate that summer is right around the corner!  My kids will be on summer vacation in three weeks and we can't wait to get outside and enjoy all that it has to offer.  Trust me... they will NOT be sitting on the couch playing video games all summer long!

I've 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!


National Geographic Children's Books is debuting three new books that are perfect for curing that cabin fever and inspiring youngsters to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors.

Get Outside Creativity Book  (ages 6-9, $12.99) - This big, bright spiral-bound activity book encourages kids to get outside and play! It's chock full of stencils, stickers, pull-outs, games, trivia, puzzles, and cutouts that encourage exploration and learning in the great outdoors. It's the perfect gift for any parent wanting to foster creativity and imagination, while encouraging kids to unplug, get off the couch, and get to know the world around them. The format engages readers with a combination of fun and whimsical design and National Geographic's world-famous photography.

Ultimate Explorer Field Guide: Birds (ages 8-12, $12.99) - Photo-filled and fact-packed, this one of a kind bird guide will make kids Stop! Look! and Listen! to find the feathered friends right in their own backyards. From ducks to hawks, sparrows to sandpipers, kids will learn how, where, and when to spot birds all over the United States. With tons of info and interactivity prompts, it's the perfect companion for backyard or field trip, camping or vacation. Durable and portable, it's just right for pocket or backpack.
Look & Learn: Caterpillar to Butterfly (board book, $6.99) - A durable board book that is made for tiny hands and curious minds!  Preschoolers and their parents follows a monarch as it develops from a cute caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly in simple, age-appropriate language.

These books are AMAZING!  They are bright, colorful, and full of great information.  The creativity book promotes exploration, creativity and imagination - making it the perfect for summer outdoor fun.  Whether you're at home, exploring the park, hiking in the woods, or camping... these are the perfect companion for your children.
