Books make the best gifts. My kids always end up reading their book presents on Christmas afternoon. Just about that time when the excitement is dwindling and the sleepiness of staying up late and not being about to sleep kicks in. They tend to curl up on the couch or in bed and enjoy the quiet reading time.
I have a bunch of National Geographic Kids Books to share with you - all perfect for gift giving. On top of that one lucky reader will win a set of them all (more on that at the end of this post.)
