My eager-to-learn six year old is already out of school for summer break. In the week and a half he has been out of school he has been reading a ton and National Geographic Kids series of readers are my favorite of all of his books and ones he is always eager to read. We bought a couple of the readers through the Scholastic book club and I was so impressed with the series I reached out to see if we could partner on a review of the readers line of books.
My son loves the reader books and I really appreciate how informative they are teaching him while he’s reading through the book. His favorite parts of every book are the jokes, the interesting facts page and he LOVES the “Stump Your Parents” quiz at the back of the book. I always get quizzed and it’s the perfect way for him to hear the information again and help him remember the facts he just learned. Every page is full color and very vibrant with really interesting and unique pictures that grab your attention.
The National Geographic Kids Readers come in three different levels to be appropriate for a range of reading levels. Each level increases in the amount of text, the vocabulary used, and it even feels like the subjects increase in difficult as well. The Almanac is geared towards children ages 8-12 but even my 6 year old loves looking through the book, checking out the activities, and reading the book, too.
You’ll notice in the pictures, this Almanac is LOADED with interesting information that kids will be eager to learn about. It covers a huge variety of topics. The National Geographic Kids Almanac 2014 has a map section and lots of information on different countries and states. We are planning a road trip for this summer so I love the details included about the states so he can learn some fun and interesting things about where we will be headed and see just how far we are going by showing him on the map how far we drove in a day and relate the map to experience to build his awareness of the world around him.
