Fill Your Family’s Easter Baskets with These Books from National Geographic Kids Books! (GIVEAWAY; $75 Value)


It’s hard to resist filling up those Easter baskets with chocolate, jelly beans and Peeps, but be sure to include a few items that will last a lot longer than candy! Books are a great way to keep the spirit of Easter alive all year ‘round and avoid the post-Easter sugar rush. National Geographic Kids Books has several new titles for kids of all ages that are perfect for Easter and Spring. I have always been a HUGE fan of National Geographic Kids Books because they’re not only educational, but they’re filled with vivid, colorful photos and words of wisdom. Check out these books for consideration this Easter:

Somebunny Loves Me by Parry Gripp
hardcover picture book, ages 4-8

Parry is an Emmy-winning singer-songwriter whose quirky, popular tunes, including “Nom, nom, nom” and “It’s Raining Tacos” have made his YouTube channel a smash hit with nearly 140 million views. He is an avid animal lover and his bunny Bruno is often the inspiration behind so many of his songs. In Somebunny Loves Me, Parry’s sweet and silly rhymes are cleverly written to share how children can best understand, appreciate and interact with a variety of fuzzy, feathered or scaly pals. Paired with adorable, full-page photographs, Parry also includes a personal note in the back of the book giving kids and their parents more tips on how to be good pet owners — from how to keep pets safe, clean and healthy to how to best interact with them and even pointers on on how to make a pet music video. Check out the Somebunny Loves Me music video and sing along as you and your kids turn the pages (hopefully with their favorite pet by their side!): https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/books/somebunny/.

Susan’s favorite part: The music video is adorable! Kids (and parents) will want to watch it over and over again.

Who's Who in the Bible
hardcover, ages 8-12

Everyone you need to know from the old and new testaments! From Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to Paul's ministry to the ancient world, this beautiful book pairs need-to-know information about biblical personalities with timeless artwork. Each vibrant, colorful profile is accompanied by fast facts, including which books of the Bible the person appears in and what he or she is best known for. Feature spreads cover the history, archaeology, and geography associated with notable individuals. An alphabetical index covering more names not mentioned in profiles ensures that kids reading the Bible never have to ask, "Who's that?"

Susan’s favorite part: The beautiful artwork really catches the eye, and an index makes it easy to find just about any name from the Bible!

A Seed Is the Start
hardcover picture book, ages 6-9

Spring is about to, well, spring into action, and the magical seed is where it all begins. Beautiful photography and lyrical text pair with comprehensive picture captions in award-winning author Melissa Stewart's story about the surprisingly diverse world of seeds. Learn all about the plant cycle, from how seeds grow, the fascinating ways they travel, and what it takes for a seed to become a plant. The magic of spring, revealed!

Susan’s favorite part: Read this book, and it will inspire you to plant seeds with your children or students and watch them grow!

100 Ways to Make the World Better!
paperback, ages 8-12

Who says kids can't change the world? If they've got the will, Nat Geo Kids can guide the way, with doable activities, hands-on projects, advice from National Geographic explorers, interviews with experts, weird-but-true facts, and more inspiration. In keeping with the Nat Geo Kids mission, the book is full of practical, positive, and powerful ideas that every kid can consider, from simple acts of kindness to creative adventures to good-for-the-planet projects. Ideas are presented as simple concepts with engaging graphics and photographs, and many are followed by detailed supporting information. Kids get a sense of their own power to make a difference and an understanding of what actions contribute to positive outcomes. Sometimes all it takes is starting with something simple, and before you know it, together we've reshaped our planet for the better.

Susan’s favorite part: This book has tips for everyone, from the simple, such as “Teach someone how to do something you know how to do well” to ones that require greater effort, such as “Walk to fight disease or support a cause.” Anyone can find some great ideas in this book!
