Bedtime Stories Are The Best With National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.



  My Boys love bedtime stories and so do I. My boys will quickly get ready for bed when I announce that I am ready to read them a story. Even at eight and ten, they are never too old for bedtime stories. When I forget to read to them, they always ask "do we get a story tonight?" and unless it is way past their bedtime, I never refuse that sweet request. Reading to my boys is not only a great time for them to learn but it is also a great way to end the day with bonding time. I hope my boys will keep asking for bedtime stories for many more years. Some nights, I do all the reading and other nights my boys help me with the reading. I just love my bedtime reading with my boys, as it is a perfect way to end my day.



  I know my boys are excellent readers because of bedtime stories. The ten-year-old reads at a high school level and the eight-year-old reads at a 6th-grade level so finding books that they enjoy can be challenging. My boys and have fallen in love with books from National Geographic Kids a while back. So when we had the opportunity to review some more books from their National Geographic Kids Super Readers Program, my boys were so excited. We love these books for bedtime stories for many reasons. These books have taught us such a wealth of information. I have even learned new information. The books have colorful real life pictures that make reading them exciting. Through these books, my boys and I have learned new things about animals, space, and more. I love that these books come in different four reading levels and provide a great interactive reading experience for my boys.



 When these books arrived, my ten-year-old wanted to start with a Level 3 book called Sacagawea and he wanted to do the reading at bedtime. We learned that Sacagawea was a young Native American who was a brave explorer during the time of Lewis and Clark. I love that my son learned new words as he was reading. After my son read the book to his brother and me, he then said, "mom, I have a quiz for you to see if you were paying attention to the story." I am glad the quiz at the back of the book had multiple choice answers and I was able to get most of them right! Then my other son read a Level 3 book about Mars and we learned that there are four seasons on Mars.


Here are the four levels of the National Geographic Kids Super Reader books.

Pre-reader - for kids who are ready to read. These books feature short sentences and are great for kids building their vocabulary.


Level 1 - for kids who are starting to read. These books feature a shared reading experience between younger readers and a parent, older sibling or friend.


Level 2 - for kids who are reading independently. These books feature longer sentences and more complex vocabulary. They also have a color glossary.


Level 3 - for kids who are fluent readers. These books feature more complex sentences and more challenging vocabulary. Books also have a quiz at the end so kids can test themselves on what they've read.
  Kids can even earn prizes and rewards when they read these wonderful books. What a great way to encourage my boys to read more. You can find out more about this cool program at the below link.      http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/superreaders  I love that kids can dive deeper into what they learned about the books also at the website. The website also has activities and games to play. This has become my boy's new favorite website to visit when they have computer time.







These books can be found at all major bookstores as well as the National Geographic site and Amazon.com. Each book retails for $3.99.

  15. It's good to supply the kids with as much books as we can. Especially the educational ones! I think this is great! National Geographic has been publishing books before but not like this. Kudos to them.
