Weird but True from National Geographic celebrates its 10th Anniversary!

National Geographic Kids is my son’s favourite.  Once he learned how to read and whenever we hit a bookstore he always leaves with one of their books.  I enjoy them too and it’s something my son and I will do together.  Just the two of us.  Last night he asked if we could read together and I think my heart grew 100 times as this is a great way to sneak in one on one time amongst three f my kids.  You can even check out a post I wrote 3 years ago about National Geographic. My son truly loves his collection.

From the fun facts and great pics, my son likes that he can read through it easily and always finishes them learning something new.  It is engaging and adventurous for young minds and there are more than 25 of these Weird but True books. For example, we got the following for review:

~ Weird but True- 350 Outrageous Facts (6)

Weird but True 350 Outrageous Facts (10)
Weird but True Canada (side fact: this is the first country-specific Weird but True book!)

Someone was up late last night reading!  He’s usually on his video games so this was a nice way to spend the night leading up to bedtime.  IMG_20181214_225822

If you are road tripping this holiday season, make sure you have a few in the car as this is a great and ideal activity when parents want to kids to get off the iPads and iPhones, the books are very entertaining that they will love learning all of these neat tidbits.  In Canada, the books retail for $10.99 and $7.99 in the US and since I have you here, check out the giveaway National Geographic is hosting. Enter the Weird but True Canada Contest (ends March.1/19)and share an interesting/weird fact about your hometown.  I know a few about Winnipeg so I am going to enter! National Geographic Kids is also celebrating its 10th Anniversary so I hope you’ll check them out and add some of their books under the tree this holiday season. A portion of sales from their books help support National Geographic’s exploration, conservation, research and education projects. And since it’s cold and flu season, I am going to leave you with this fun fact!

    My daughter loves to read and some of her favorites are these exact books from National Geographic. I love that she is reading and learning, even if it sometimes means she fills my mind with random weird facts.

    I didn’t know that there is a National Geographic especially for kids. Such a good idea and I’m sure kids love them.
