Back to School with National Geographic Kids + Giveaway

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own.

I am so excited for my daughter to go back to school this year. She will be in pre-k and we are going all five days this year to prepare her for kindergarten. I am so excited for her. She loves school so much. I want her to have every opportunity to available, so we work with her at home as well.



It's hard to believe, but it's time to think about shaking off the summer haze and sharpening reading skills for the new school year! This Fall, National Geographic debuts several titles for kids of all ages and reading levels that are perfect for getting into the back-to-school groove and priced to NOT bust the back-to-school budget.

Explore My World series (ages 3-7, $4.99 each) -  These engaging Explore My World picture books on subjects kids care about combine simple stories with unforgettable photography. They invite little kids to take their first big steps toward understanding the world around them and are just the thing to curl up with together and read aloud. In Explore My World: Baby Animals readers learn about a day in the life of a baby animal, from mama's care to the great world beyond.  Explore My World: Nighttime delves into the nighttime and all its mysteries, from the stars to hooting owls.

NG Readers series (ages 5-8, $3.99 each) - Each book in the best selling National Geographic Readers series is written in an easy-to-read format and falls into one of five reading levels and is labeled by level on its front cover. The simple, fun text is only the beginning: National Geographic photography and kid-friendly diagrams draw kids in and get them reading about their favorite subjects. Developed by National Geographic in close consultation with literacy education experts, this series is one teachers, librarians, parents, and grandparents know they can trust to nurture every child's love of reading. New this season is NG Readers: Flutter, Butterfly (Level 3), NG Readers: Coral Reefs (Level 2), NG Readers: Ugly Animals (Level 2), NG Readers: Pope Francis (Level 1) and NG Readers: Rosa Parks (Level 2).


Chapters series (ages 7-10, $5.99 each) - This chapter book series picks up where the Readers series leaves off.  For sports fans and animal lovers, Chapters:  Hoops to Hippos, True Stories of a Basketball Star on Safari is a slam dunk. San Antonio Spurs' Boris Diaw takes young readers on safari as he explores his off-court passion: wildlife photography! Join Diaw as he escapes from stampeding wildebeests, comes face-to-face with lions, and discovers why you should never come between a hippo and its watery home. In Chapters: Hoot, Hoot Hooray and More True Stories of Amazing Animal Rescues kids meet some brave, amazing animals and the caring people who come to their rescue.


Look & Learn Series (ages 2-5, $6.99 each) - Even when their backpacks are almost as big as they are, reading together is critical for developing a lifelong love of books. The Look and Learn series of board books  Look & Learn board book series is developed in association with child education experts and introduces concepts with context reinforcement so learning sticks.  This Fall features two new titles, Look and Learn:  Dig and Look and Learn: Ocean Creatures.



One lucky Nanny to Mommy reader will win a "Reading Rocks Mega Giveaway" consisting of all 11 titles listed above (ARV $48).  US only (sorry), must be 18+ to enter.

    This would be for my oldest daughter, who loves to read! I have been wanting to add more non fiction books to our home library! She would probably love all of them, but I think she would take a great interest in the Flutter, Butterfly book since she has been asking a lot of questions about them recently. We are looking forward to "back to school" this year because, instead of teaching first grade in the public school, I will be homeschooling my kiddo!! :) Looking forward to it!
