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. 

Both of my kids get books for every holiday, I also give my nieces and nephews books as part of their birthday and Christmas gifts as well! National Geographic Kids has a wide variety of books that kids are sure to enjoy.  I love the fact that their books are both educational and fun.  They are also bright and bold... they grab your attention and pull you in.


Here are a few of National Geographic Kids Books' newest offerings that make terrific birthday gifts for kids of all ages, whether they are already book lovers or maybe they are a reluctant reader --- either way, these books will grab their attention:

I liked reading the sample pages of the 5,000 AWESOME FACTS book.
I also like the family tab that shares ideas for BOREDOM BUSTERS
Brain games, science experiments, and outdoor fun.

I didn't realize the kiddos could play games on the website. Both my son and daughter will love this! Very cool. Thanks!

My son would love to read Bet You Didn't Know! and How Things Work and then impress us all with his new knowledge!

I learned that orcas are called "wolves of the sea" because they hunt as a team. They are among the most successful hunters in the world!

Oh I didnt know they have a video section! That is so neat! We love watching videos on youtube, but always have to search for ones we like. This is perfect, and so many to choose from!

I absolutely love that they make books. I used to only think that they had magazine subscriptions and kid magazines. What a pleasant surprise!
