Kids Reference Books From Reader’s Digest

If you have a curious little scholar like me who would rather read a science facts book than a comic book, books like these hard cover kids reference books from Reader’s Digest are a sure hit this holiday season.

Best for ages 9+ and grade 4+, these books are heavy on text with some illustration – definitely for the fact-seeker in your household!  When I received the books, I didn’t think Elijah (7) would be ready for them yet though he does read at a higher grade level than he’s in.  He started flipping through them and reading immediately – then the mean mom that I am, I hid them until our Disney trip.
