We are huge National Geographic Kids book fans in my home. My daughter owns at least a half a dozen titles that can be found in her regular read shelf even at this very moment. They are known for colorful illustrations that amazingly attract our youth’s attention. Every time I present her with a new NGKids book to add to her collection, it becomes hour-long conversations on how is this possible, is this true and just plan wow after wow.
