Summer Fun Facts and Adventure
National Geographic Kids
These Nat Geo Summer books are perfect for kids, so that they can keep their minds and imaginations active and entertained.
They are so much fun, but, of course, they are also educational.
The Explorer Academy is a series of fictional books that are recommended for ages 8 to 12.
The updated 2021 Almanac is for the same age range and Little Kids First Big Book of Why is for younger children.
But …. National Geographic Kids books can definitely be enjoyed by those of us who are outside of the recommended age range.
When I was a kid, I loved soaking up the fun facts in almanacs.
That hasn’t changed a bit and I could still spend hours with these beautifully illustrated, information packed National Geographic books.
Get these great books for your kids, but feel free to enjoy them, too!
Little Kids Book of Why
Pub. date 5/20/11
What makes a car go?
How does mushy dough become a crispy cookie?
What does the doctor see in my throat?
An essential parent reference, The Big Book of Why invites children to ask big questions, think big thoughts, and get answers that are accurate, engaging, level-appropriate, and based on sound educational findings.
This book helps parents share fascinating, accurate answers, and inspires kids to be curious, ask questions, and explore the world around them.
Games and parent tips encourage interactivity and extend the experience of the book beyond its pages.
Highly photographic and playful, this big, sturdy book is an adventure in exploration.

My grandkids have learned so much from the National Geographic books.
I’ve had National Geographic books for kids before and they were nice quality. The photographs are always nice. The Big Book of Why and the Almanac sounds interesting even for adults. I’ve only recently heard of their Explorer Academy books, but don’t know much about them.
