pic1First up is National Geographic Little Kids Magazine is a bi-monthly magazine which is geared toward kids aged 3 to 6 and as such is full of sharp huge pictures, short stories, picture games, and more.  The magazine is run by National Geographic so picture quality is out of this world and is an incredible wealth of information.  Its so great to come home to an excited little guy who seams to know everything possible about parrots.  Each subscription costs $15 for 6 issues.

pic 1For the bigger kids is National Geographic Kids Magazine, which is geared to ward kids 6-12 years old and has 10 issues a year, roughly monthly.  Sporting more in depth articles and features while still including tons of picture and illustrations.  This magazine is great for kids who are nature and animal lovers as well as lovers of science.  Both magazines are great fun but adults will find it more informative to read through the regular kids magazine. a subscription of 10 issues retails for $15.

National Geographic are known for their coverage of everything nature with a playful side.  Their book line are one of the ways they express this playful side to keep kids and adults engaged and learning.


Lets take a look at a few of these fun (and shhhh! educational) books.  Up first Angry Birds Star Wars.  This book is based on the wildly popular new Angry Birds game, which takes the tried and true Angry Birds formula and adds a coat of Star Wars to it.  The book takes this formula and adds a more educational spin on it.  Not only does the book cover Angry Birds and Star Wars, but takes the ‘Star’ part of Star Wars and runs with it.  With this book the reader learns about the science and technology behind Star Wars while also covering the characters and settings in which the game take place.  The book covers topics like hover crafts and planet Kepler 16b.  All this on wonderfully bright and colorful pages, filled with illustrations and huge pictures.  This book would fit well on the bookshelf of Angry Birds fans and Star Wars fans of all ages.
