Spotlight & Giveaway: 4 National Geographic Kids Books


I'm so excited to be sharing and giving away four fantastic new books from National Geographic Kids...

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. 


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.  


The latest installment of the New York Times best-selling almanac is edutainment at its best.  With features like Homework Help and STEM related topics, and deep dives into history, geography and cultures from the world, combined with facts, crafts and activities, this is the go-to reference for both the school day and down time. This new edition also includes the  Almanac Challenge 2021 — which inspires kids to reduce their plastic waste and encourage others to do the same — and also highlights the winner of the 2020 Almanac Challenge. 


With the Beginner’s United States Atlas, the United States Atlas 6th Edition, and the Kids 2021 Almanac, National Geographic Kids offers readers of all ages three invaluable resources perfect for back to school reading! Chock full of fascinating facts, gorgeous photographs, helpful maps, charts, and illustrations, and thoroughly researched and excitedly presented information, these three books are sure to engage, entertain, and inspire readers!

Calling all boys and ghouls: You're in for a treat of freaky facts, stats, tidbits, and trivia about one of the most popular holidays! Did you know that there is an underwater pumpkin carving contest? Or that the U.S. Defense Department has a zombie apocalypse plan? Maybe you'd be amazed to discover that there are more Halloween emojis than there are U.S. states? It's all weird--and it's all true--in this latest and greatest edition, packed with hilarious and terrifying tidbits on Halloween!
