I received product from National Geographic to facilitate this ‘celebrate your love for books’ post. As always, all opinions are my own.
Do you have a love for books? I find reading to be a true pleasure in life. And instilling that deep root of a love for reading is especially important when kids are young. If you can raise kids that love books, there’s an entire world of possibilities that open up.
A Love For Reading
Reading is so important and beneficial that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends parents start reading aloud to their children from the time they are born. Sharing stories, talking, and singing every day will help your child’s development in a variety of ways.
- Get To Know Sounds
- Hear A Variety Of Words And Languages
- Develop Literary Skills
- Ultimately, It Will Aid In Writing Skills Down The Road Too
- And More!
Celebrate Your Love For Books This Valentines Day With National Geographic
If you’re looking for a gift idea for the kids in your life but want to avoid candy and chocolate, look no further. National Geographic can help you make this Valentine’s Day special for your little bookworms with three books about things kids LOVE — baby animals, music and dinosaurs!
We Love Babies! (ages 2-5, National Geographic Kids Books, Hardcover, $17.99)
Love + adorable baby animals = a MUST for Valentine’s Day and baby shower gift giving. This hilarious picture book with rollicking, rhyming text reads like a crowd-pleasing call. It pumps up readers’ excitement for the cutest baby animals ever. Illustrated with lively National Geographic photography, We Love Babies! presents furred, feathered, and finned baby animals of all shapes and sizes. It celebrates their glorious diversity, from “paws and claws and little flippers” to “feet that look like fuzzy slippers!”. Whimsical cartoon cheerleaders add to the fun, popping up throughout the book to lead fans in the irresistible refrain: “We love babies, yes we do, we love babies, how about you?”
Turn it Up!: A Pitch-Perfect History of Music that Rocked the World (ages 8-12, National Geographic Kids Books, Hardcover, $19.99)
Get ready to ROCK ON! The high notes and biggest moments in music history are covered in this big, bright, hardcover. — From Bach to the Beatles to Beyonce, and beyond. So many major music genres are playfully explained, from tribal, classical, jazz, folk, opera, rock. All the way to today’s modern forms, such as k-pop, hip-hop, and rap. Instruments and sounds are explored, along with places and events in history that inspired the evolution of music. Kids will also get a sense of music theory, instrumentation, and the artistry of distinctive musical styles. Song recommendations help readers open their ears to what they’ve learned. And a rockin’ glossary of musical terms as well as a timeline that plots each genre on its path from ancient history to today make this book one that is bound to top the charts.
