Boredom Busters from National Geographic Kids + Book Duo #Giveaway

Are you tired of hearing the dreaded words "Mom! I'm bored!" from your kids? For all the toys, games, devices, and activities my kids own, they never cease to tell me how bored they are- especially when it's raining or too chilly or wet to play outside. Right now, we're dealing with pollen season, so we wind up forced to stay indoors while pollen literally rains down from the trees surrounding our house. Even though the weather has been gorgeous, we've been avoiding going outside until we get a good rain to wash some of that nasty yellow stuff away. Rather than sticking the kids in front of the TV or a tablet, we like to turn to books when we're bored, out of ideas for activities, and for our evening enjoyment as a family before everyone heads to bed.

Ever since B was young, we've loved books from National Geographic Kids. B has recently gotten into watching some of the National Geographic shows on Disney+, and his collection of Nat Geo Kids books is one that he goes back to time and time again. He loves to know general stuff and facts (like his dad and grandmother), and Nat Geo Kids books are filled with tons of facts that will amaze kids and adults alike!

For Young Readers, Check Out Nat Geo Kids Little Kids First Big Book of Why!

National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Why (ages 3-7, hardcover, 128 pgs)— a #1 Besteller on Amazon!  

Using an interactive question-and-answer format and content grounded in a child's immediate world, the Big Book of Why delivers lively information, hands-on games, simple recipes, crafts, and more. 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. It helps prepare preschoolers for school in an interactive way — the very best way to foster learning at this age, according to research. Highly photographic and playful, this big book is an adventure in exploration.

Lunchtime reading with daddy!

We adore this amazing book! It's perfect for Bean, who is super inquisitive and wants to know everything at the age of five. We've enjoyed learning about our bodies, why babies look and act the way they do, and more! This book has proven to be a big winner in our house. Bean's older brother loves to settle in with her at night and read this to her- or we all huddle together and read as a family. Even during lunch breaks, Bean has been known to grab this book and bring it to her dad so they can read together before he heads back to work for the afternoon.
