The dog days of summer are upon us and with the heat and humidity comes the inevitable complaint from pool-, playdate- and beach-weary kids — “I’m bored!!” National Geographic Children’s Books has the ultimate summer boredom busters — three books that are fun, interactive and – gasp! – educational (but don’t tell your kids that!). Kaia loves these books while I will admit there is a lot that she does not understand at three the pictures of the animals make her so happy and she will sit there just looking at her books telling me that she is reading. Mike and I have been reading them as well and telling each other random trivia we find. There is so much fun and interesting information in these great books. They are sure to keep any reader entertained.

* Weird But True – Based upon the hugely popular page in the National Geographic Kids magazine, kids will definitely say “wow!,” “cool!” and “gross!” as they flip through the 301 outrageous facts and learn, for instance, that peanut butter can be converted into a diamond, an elephant’s tooth can weigh as much as a bowling ball and a dog can make about 100 different facial expressions!
* The Big Book of Fun – Featuring National Geographic’s signature photography and vivid graphics, this interactive game book includes over 75 games, mazes, fill-in-the-blank stories, trivia tests and more.
* National Geographic Kids Almanac 2011 – Introduced last year and updated for 2011, this best-selling almanac has quickly become the gold standard. Kids will love the more than 50 puzzles, projects and cool experiments, the 500 pictures of our planet and all that’s on it and the more than 5,000 fun and amazing facts. Parents will love it because its chapters on science, geography and history — plus more than 15 homework-helper sections — is a terrific way to kick-start their kids’ brains as the new school year approaches.
