March is National Reading Month!
My kids LOVE to read and LOVE books – we have a ton! I love how they can sit with a book and be content. We read each night to the kids and now that Gabriella is reading – she often reads aloud to her siblings. I just love watching the kids grown and learn and develop their love for reading. Books are the perfect opportunity to unplug, read together, read aloud, or find a quiet place for kids to read on their own.
Recently we have been enjoying several new items from the National Geographic Kids collection. The books in this collection are great for all levels of readers. My kids range in age from 2-6 and while Anthony and Valentina enjoy the Pre-Readers and Picture books, Gabriella is loving the Level 1 readers.
National Geographic is well know for their beautiful photographs and these books do not disappoint. The photos have sparked so many questions from my kids – further developing their knowledge of animals, historical events, and the sciences.
National Geographic Kids is the leading nonfiction publisher for kids and the only publisher with the world’s premier scientific, education, and research organization at its core. Colorful graphics, beautiful photography and rich informative content are hallmarks of its books. NGK’s mission is to inspire kids to learn about the planet and empower them to make it better
About National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers →
As the leader in nonfiction children’s publishing, NGK developed this series with experts in literacy education who know that informational reading is critical to children’s success in school and later in life.
NGK Readers deliver amazing color photos, facts, and fun on every page because research shows that these are appealing to kids. They feed a child’s natural curiosity about the world and curiosity is a powerful motivation for reading.
NGK books are sprinkled with subject-related jokes and puns because research shows that laughing actually helps kids learn.
Visual stimulation adds to reading comprehension and enjoyment, so NGK books feature eye-popping illustrations, bold, bright text, and colorful boxes and callouts that encourage the eye to move around the page, taking in every piece of information.
Active engagement with a book helps kids to better remember what they’ve read, otherwise known as “Learning by Doing” and “Experiential Learning.” Every page of the book challenges the child to interact with it.
Kids can interact even more with the books through the National Geographic Kids Super Readers website, where they can download free posters, sticker sheets, and other prizes and activities as they chart their own reading accomplishments.
I have vivid memories of looking thru the pages of National Geographic magazine with family and friends. It always seemed that where ever I was someone had NG magazine on their coffee table. I want my kids to have similar memories when seeing the NG logo so I’m glad the NG has developed a series that is perfect for so many families including mine.
