I received product from National Geographic Kids Books. All opinions are my own.
Christmas will be here before we know it. Have you started your shopping yet? I’ve got a good jump on the gifts but still more to do. And over the years, we’ve done a variety of different things. One year, we gave each of the kids three gifts. They were to represent the three gifts the wisemen brought to Jesus. And perhaps you’ve heard of this saying already:
- Something they want.
- Something they need.
- One thing they wear.
- Another thing to read.
So this year be sure you consider National Geographic kids books brand new titles that make perfect gifts for the explorer in each of us.
