National Geographic Books for Kids

Today we are going to look at a few new National Geographic books which are now available in a book store near you.

animalFirst up is Animal Encyclopedia. This book is big, it is 9 1/2 by 12 inches and over 300 pages long. The encyclopedia is a wonderful reference for everyone in the family. It contains over 2,500 species. Each entry includes the animals habitat, what their diet consists of, their weight and height as well as some fun facts. There are also over 1,000 full color pictures of the critters which are of the National Geographic quality of photos, its almost like being there next to them. The book is broken into sections by animal, there are mammals, birds, invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians and fish. What I find interesting about this book is that it’s the perfect table top book. Kids and adults alike like to flip through it, or pick out their favorite animals and read a quick snippet of information about them, or just flip to a random page and check out the animal. Not only is this a nice table top book, but it would also fit perfectly on that book shelf in your kid’s room, so if during homework they need to find out what the diet of the ring tailed pheasant is, the knowledge is at their finger tips.
