We are soooo excited about spring finally making its way here. We haven’t been happy about all the weather setbacks here in Minnesota recently. Below freezing days do NOT make it feel like spring. But, no matter the weather, we know that the warmer days and spring fun are right around the corner.
With the warm weather, that means it will finally be time to stop being stuck inside and start spending more time outdoors! National Geographic Kids Books is debuting three new books that are perfect for curing that cabin fever and inspiring youngsters to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. Even BEFORE it gets warm, then can do some reading to get excited about the soon-to-come spring!
Get Outside Creativity Book (ages 6-9, $12.99) – This big, bright spiral-bound activity book encourages kids to get outside and play! It’s chock full of stencils, stickers, pull-outs, games, trivia, puzzles, and cutouts that encourage exploration and learning in the great outdoors. It’s the perfect gift for any parent wanting to foster creativity and imagination, while encouraging kids to unplug, get off the couch, and get to know the world around them. The format engages readers with a combination of fun and whimsical design and National Geographic’s world-famous photography.
