Get Your Kids into Reading with National Geographic Books

We all know the importance of reading to our children and the importance of having them read frequently to themselves. In fact, the National Education Association reports that students who do more reading at home are not only better readers, but also have higher math scores. Research also shows that the more types of reading materials that are available at home, the higher students score in reading proficiency.

But as parents we know an interest in reading and books doesn’t come naturally for all kids. That’s why it’s crucial to find books that will peak and hold their interest. It’s a bonus when these books teach them something at the same time. That’s where National Geographic Books come in. I can honestly tell you my 7-year-old daughter is hooked on the National Geographic Kids Level books.
