I have ANOTHER amazing National Geographic Kids Books Prize Pack Giveaway for you!
We received the National Geographic Kids books for review. All opinions are my own.
Sophia and I are definitely the readers of the family. While I love to read, I don’t as much as I used to. I have a million excuses and reasons why I need to do something else other than read, but her love of our shared hobby has definitely made me pick up books more often lately.
We’ve been reading the Harry Potter series together, but that isn’t enough for my book-loving 8 year old! While she loves HP and all the magical adventures, she’d actually tell you that nonfiction books are her favorite. She’s always bringing home a nonfiction book from the library and National Geographic Kids books are some of her favorites that always come home from the school library.
Both girls were super excited to see our latest package of National Geographic Kids books show up. There were titles that we recognized and also some new books in this 8 book package.
