I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Now that my son is 3, we've made a switch in the types of books we own. I used to get him a lot of books about colors, shapes, and things more suited for babies and toddlers. Now that he's on his way to being a "big boy," he wants to know all about the world around him. His favorite thing to learn and read about now is animals, so National Geographic Kids Books are the perfect books to fill his shelves with.
