(Win it!) Books that Kids Read Multiple Times - National Geographic Kids Home Learning Essentials

This has been a crazy year! We never could have predicted an extensive quarantine.  In today's post, I want to share books that my children will read over-and-over. I know that good books are a life saver for multitasking parents who need to work and make sure that their children are learning at home. 

Here is the list of the engaging books that our children love:

Beginner’s United States Atlas, Third Edition, (ages 7-10, 128 pages, paperback) The fully updated edition of this popular atlas introduces young readers to the wonders of all of America's states and territories, with maps, fun facts, geographical features, and more. It’s accessible design showcases what's unique about each state and territory and every profile starts with a colorful map and essay and includes capital cities; population; important land and water features; state birds, flowers, and flags. It's all packaged in a bigger format, with a refreshed design, and bold, bright photos and illustrations.

This book is fun for kids and is a nice complement to many social studies courses. I find that my son learns better when he has engaging books and is excited to learn about topics.  He is currently learning about maps and different states, so this book makes learning more fun for him.

United States Atlas Sixth Edition, (ages 8-12, 176 pages, paperback) Current, authoritative, and produced by the expert cartographers at National Geographic, this best-selling United States atlas is newly updated with all the latest info and is packed with maps, stats, facts, and pictures. National Geographic's world-renowned cartographers have paired up with education experts to create maps of all 50 states, U.S. territories, and Washington, D.C., that pinpoint the physical features, capitals, and other towns and cities. Discover the latest data along with colorful photography of each state and the people who live there. Key points reflect the latest information about land and water, people, and places. Essays cover each region of the country while eight specially themed maps on nature, population, economy, energy, climate, and more delve deeper into key issues. State birds and state flags add to the high visual interest. 

Similar to the previous book, this United States Atlas is helping my son to be a rockstar in his social studies class. He really enjoys independently learning things in this book and then having a better bigger picture of some overlapping material that is covered in class.

5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) - (ages 8-12, 224 pages, hardcover) This book is literally busting its covers with fascinating, fun-tastic facts on super, sensational topics that kids love. Who knew that there were so many sweet things to learn about chocolate or that a dozen delicious details about peanut butter would show up on a page with a few splotches of jelly to whet our appetites? Keep turning and a terrifyingly toothy shark tells you all about himself, while other spreads lay out tons of tips on toys and games, mysteries of history, robots and reptiles, sports and spies and wacky words. A visual feast of colorful photographs surrounded by swirling, tipping, expanding, and climbing bits of information in a high-energy design, this book will satisfy both the casual browser and the truly fact obsessed.

My boys are obsessed with awesome facts that they learn in National Geographic Kids books. We go on walks in the evening and they love shocking me with awesome facts that surprise me. It's fun to see them soaking up these books and then sharing their knowledge with me in the evenings!

Izzy Newton and the S.M.A.R.T. Squad: Absolute Hero (ages 8-12, 192 pages, hardcover)— A brand new series from the author of many beloved American Girl books, Valerie Tripp! Join Izzy Newton and her friends at Atom Middle School in the first adventure of this new middle-grade fiction series. A crowded new school and a crazy class schedule is enough to make Izzy feel dizzy. But for the S.M.A.R.T. Squad, it’s all about relying on the value of friendship and the power of science to help them think their way through all kinds of sticky situation. Science and tech reign supreme when these five brainy buddies put their heads together! Read the first chapter and meet the characters here.

My oldest son loves Izzy Newton.  He's able to relate to this trendy middle school student who encourages positive friendships and reinforces the value of being a good student.

Little Kids First Big Book of Science (ages 4-8, 128 pages, hardcover) - This lively introduction to the fascinating world of science explores the different kinds of science, what scientists do, and the amazing things that scientists study: animals and plants; oceans and space; earthquakes and volcanoes; sound and light; inventions and more! Fun activities, games, and simple experiments encourage interactive learning, showing kids that anyone can use scientific observation and experimentation to be a scientist and discover new things. With bright images and age-appropriate text, this book inspires kids to be curious, ask questions, and explore the world around them and maybe even grow up to be a scientist one day, too! Topics include astronomy, botany, paleontology, malacology (that's the science of clams, snails, and other animals with shells!), zoology, and more.

My preschooler is still learning to read, but isn't quite there yet. He loves flipping through this book on his own when I am busy with meetings, but is even more excited when we read it together. The authors of this book did an amazing job!

I hope that you enjoyed this glimpse into our favorite books that make it easier to manage working from home while also overseeing my children. This is not an easy time for parents of young children. I have found that good books are very helpful!
