With the beautiful weather in full swing and Easter literally being right around the corner… I am on the hunt for the perfect gifts for my little ones that does not involve ‘only’ candy. I have always been like that and one of my favorite things to gift my kids are books as knowledge is the key to everything and ensuring that my kids have a fun filled library full of books that teach and educate all while making reading fun… is the key. I always had tons of books growing up as I kid and I wanted to instill that same love for reading with my own kids which is the reason that I jumped at the chance to work with Nat Geo Kids and the ‘FOR THE BIRDS’ book collection. I love National Geographic Kids and their amazing line of books that are perfect for kids of all ages and remember…. they are never too young to start reading! Let’s take a look at the ‘FOR THE BIRDS’ collection of books from Nat Geo…….
Little Kids First Board Book: Birds
Little Kids First Board Book: Birds if there first book on my list. This book is a board book and it is perfect for baby to age 3. This wonderful book is designed to be the stepping stone to the best-selling National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book series. The Little Kids First Board Book series takes similar big subjects and distills them down to the simplest nonfiction concepts for the youngest audience. Not only will readers learn about a variety of birds, but they can also find recurring shapes and patterns in the art, while adults can keep their eyes open for occasional funny commentary from the animals. With their bright and playful design, awesome photography, clear text, and cues to encourage interactive learning, the Little Kids First Board Books take a fresh new approach to make learning about nature and science fun. I love this book for little Scarlet and even though she is 5, she still loves flipping through the pages and taking in all of the wonderful photos and captions.
National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Birds
The Little Kids First Big Book of Birds is a wonderful hardcover book that every child needs and is recommended for ages 4 through 8. This fabulous book introduces young readers to birds of all kinds: big and small, flyers and swimmers, colorful and plain. Your little kiddos will find backyard favorites, such as robins and cardinals and they will be introduced to more unique species that inhabit rain forests and deserts around the world. This book also goes over bird behaviors that kids can relate to, including singing, dancing, building, swimming, and diving, in addition to revealing fascinating insights into the avian world. There are more than 100 colorful photos that are paired with profiles of each bird, along with facts about the creatures’ sizes, diets, homes, and more. This charming book will quickly become a favorite at storytime, bedtime, and any other time and I can attest to this as Scarlet checks this book out daily. She is loving learning about the birds!
“Parents, teachers, and curious children will be fascinated by this excellent introduction to birds. VERDICT Lush nature photography, concise language, a large print size, and a browsable layout: this offering is ideal for home, school, and library use” – School Library Journal
Fly With Me: A Celebration of Birds through Pictures, Poems, and Stories
Fly With Me is another fabulous book from Nat geo Kids and it is hardcover and carotid for ages 4 to 8 although I love it equally as an adult! This is a thoughtful and beautifully curated collection of our flying, feathery friends that highlights the role birds play in human life from centuries ago to present day. While it’s beautiful and contains many original poems, it’s also full of valuable real science about these wondrous creatures and me and Scarlet and loving learning all about them. From history and behavior to spotting and photographing, there’s something for every bird fan in the flock. Young bird lovers will learn all about migration and the importance of habitat conservation plus they’ll find stories about bird rescues and fun facts about the fastest, strongest, and tiniest fliers. They’ll also discover the best bird nests, sweet songs to sing, ways to listen for and identify the birds around them, and so much more. This has become a night time favorite for Scarlet and I honestly look forward to it too.
“…a lavishly illustrated compendium of facts, photographs, and poetry…As is characteristic of National Geographic publications, the plentiful photographs are well-chosen and beautifully reproduced. A treasure for browsers and bird lovers everywhere.” — Kirkus Starred Review
