Reading is great for the brain at any age, but I love how well the Booper can retain more of what he reads. Getting his hands on books that teach him about science and mechanics is really important to me, so I love National Geographic Kids. He is so interested in learning how everything works, and honestly I don't always know the answer to his questions. Having a book to that answers his questions is great, but the pictures inside National Geographic Kids books actually show him things he might not get to see otherwise. Read below about four great titles that are perfect for gift giving and enter for a chance to win them!
