When it comes to giving gifts to kids – I always try to find something that will not only make them happy, but make them learn something as well. Yes, I am that mom. Growing up I used to love reading the pages of my grandfathers National Geographic magazines – he must have had a million of them. So when I saw that National Geographic Kids had some new books coming out, I was excited to check them out with my girls.
