From personality quizzes and spine tingling scary tales, to giggle-inducing books about the cutest critters and inspiring stories all about girl power (plus an animal-themed sleep mask that is beyond adorable!), the National Geographic Kids’ “Sleepover Survival Kit Giveaway” guarantees that there will be only one thing about the night the kids AREN’T excited to do: sleep!
National Geographic Kids Personality Quizzes (ages 8-12, $9.99, Paperback)
Learn about animals and yourself with this book! Answer a few questions to find your animal personality.
What’s your shark superpower? What kind of friend are you? From weird and wacky (What stinky animal are you?) to thought-provoking and informative (What kind of explorer should you be? Which mountain should you climb?), there’s a personality profile for everyone in this totally unique book. Inside you’ll find all kinds of quizzes: flow charts, multiple choice, this or that, and more and while you’re at it, get to know about amazing animals, places, cultures, and even careers around the world!
Don’t Read This Book Before Bed: Thrills, Chills and Hauntingly True Stories (ages 8-12, $9.99, Paperback)
Are you up for a little bit of spooky reading before bedtime? Read through mini-stories filled with tales, terrors, thrills, and chills. As Kirkus Reviews states, this is “A rich source of terrors both real and manufactured, equally effective in broad daylight or beneath the bedcovers.”
Do aliens fill you with fright? Maybe you shouldn’t read about the Wow! signal, an unsettling radio signal once received from space — or the mass UFO sighting in Belgium in the 1980’s. If you love a good mystery check out the creepy Flying Dutchman, a ghost ship people have reported seeing since the 1600’s — the appearance of which means a disaster is about to strike. Glowing fireballs, underground ghost towns, zombie ants, and the ghosts of Flight 401 are just some of the stories in this 144 page volume that will have kids sleeping with the nightlight on! For the more faint of heart a helpful Fight-o-meter accompanies each spread and rates each story for the its level of scariness.
Critter Chat (ages 8-12, $9.99, Paperback)
The perfect hand-held size book filled with colorful and real life pictures! If animals could speak (and text and post selfies, and review items on Amazon), what would they say? Find out in this hilarious collection of imagined digital encounters, based on real animal intel and facts.
In the African savanna, a lion (screenname: Just_Lion_Around) declares his territory with a text-based ROAR! Meanwhile, zebra and cheetah send eyeroll emojis. In the North American suburbs, a carpet beetle texts the family dog, reassuring him that his humans will return―eventually. Among surprising, laugh-out-loud conversations like these, you’ll find tons of parody social media posts from all your favorites in the animal kingdom, including Instagram-style inspirational posts and silly Yelp-like reviews on “Yowl.” An adorable dumbo octopus posts a selfie (#FeelingCute). And a frustrated narwhal reviews an extra-long toothbrush on “Llamazon.” (It’s still too short―of course!).
Cutest Animals on the Planet (ages 8-12, $8.99, Paperback)
Just the right sized book to hold onto. Learn about various animals from around the world. This book is filled with real life images that make it look as if you are seeing the animal up close in person!
Whether you like mammals, aquatic creatures, insects, birds, amphibians, or reptiles, these animals favorites would ALL be contenders for the grand prize in a cute competition. From hedgehogs and pandas to tapirs, kakapos, and pangolins, big photos of all the “cuties” are paired pair with upbeat descriptions that highlight each critter’s crazy cool skills and unique behaviors.
