National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers

As a child, I can remember opening up a National Geographic Magazine or book and be so captivated by the pictures.  Their stunning images made me want to learn more about what I was looking at.  They have remained faithful over the years to millions, captivating images so clear and informative that they are so real and get a hold of you emotionally and drag you in.   As a home schooling mom, I turn to National Geographic to help educate my children.

Studies show that early reading helps kids' mental development and that literacy skills are a good predictor of success both in school and in life.  My kids absolutely love to read and I love it!  Nat Geo Kids is celebrating National Reading Month this month, so we wanted to introduce you to Discover the Nat Geo Kids Leveled Readers - filled with fun facts and cool nonfiction content on subjects kids love, and the Super Readers program, which inspires (and challenges!) kids to keep reading.

Just the Facts: 

  • As the leader in nonfiction children's publishing, NGK developed this series with experts in literacy education who know that informational reading is critical to children's success in school and later in life.  
  • NGK Readers deliver amazing color photos, facts and fun on every page because research shows that these are appealing to kids.  They feed a child's natural curiosity about the world an curiosity is a powerful motivation for reading.   
  • NGK books are sprinkled with subject-related jokes and puns because research shows that laughing actually helps kids learn.  
  • Visual stimulation adds to reading comprehension and enjoyment, so NGK books feature eye-popping illustrations, bold, bright text, and colorful boxes and callouts that encourage the eye to move around the page, taking in every piece of information.  
  • Active engagement with a book helps kids to better remember what they've read, otherwise known as "Learning by Doing" and "Experiential Learning." Every page of the book challenges the child to interact with it.  
  • Kids can interact even more with the books through the National Geographic Kids Super Readers website, where they can download free posters, sticker sheets, and other prizes and activities as they chart their own reading accomplishments. 
Though out the Super Readers program, your children can earn prizes as they go.  Although my children are in their early teens, they made it into a competition on who could complete their poster first.  My daughters favorite prize was the bookmarks and stickers. They also have some pretty cool collectable cards you can earn as well.  There is so much to do, it will definitely keep the kids entertained without them feeling like it's school work!

                  ST. REGIS BORA BORA LAUNCHES 

The St. Regis Bora Bora will launch an all-new "Extreme Adrenaline Adventure” package this spring, offering resort guests the chance to partake in a day of activities sure to spike the adrenaline. The package includes snorkeling with sharks and rays, a fast-paced jet ski tour around Bora Bora, and a choice of parasailing or skydiving followed by dinner at Lagoon Restaurant. 

The package is available from April 1, 2017 and pricing starts at $1,775 per couple.

Guests are whisked away from the comfort of the resort on a handmade pirogue, a small wooden canoe, captained by a local Polynesian expert. The adventure will include various stops to snorkel with eagle rays and sharks.

FAST-PACED JET SKI TOURFollowing the shark and ray encounter, adventurers will embark on a jet ski tour around the island at racing speed. A local guide will uncover special spots throughout the island tour, and make a stop in shallow water to take a break complete with a fresh fruit snack.

PARASAILING or SKYDIVINGParticipants choose between parasailing and skydiving as the final component of the “Extreme Adrenaline Adventure” package and perhaps the most exhilarating. Daredevils will soar high above the breathtaking Bora Bora lagoon and Mount Otemanu, catching the best views from hundreds of feet up in the sky.

Following an exhilarating day of heart-pumping activities, guests can unwind with dinner at Lagoon Restaurant by Jean-Georges, the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort’s exclusive signature restaurant. Considered by many as Bora Bora’s top dining experience, guests can choose from a dinner menu that includes the popular Uravena fish. Lagoon Restaurant is the only restaurant in French Polynesia to offer this fish because of the extreme difficulty of preparation.

The Boss Baby **new trailer**

THE BOSS BABY hits theaters everywhere on March 31, 2017!

Animation, in 3D
Release: March 31, 2017
Directed by: Tom McGrath
Written by: Michael McCullers (based on the award-winning picture book by Marla Frazee)
Producer: Ramsey Ann Naito
Cast: Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Miles Bakshi
DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby.  He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby.  The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim.  With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.

Gospel of Mark

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for The Lumo Project. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation

Following last year’s The Gospel of John comes the second installment in the renowned Gospel film series, The Gospel of Mark, arriving on DVD at Walmart, Digital HD and On Demand March 14 from Lionsgate. Just in time for Easter, the second book of The New Testament comes to life for the first time with a truly unique, word-for-word adaptation that uses the Gospel narrative as its script. Shot on location in Morocco with consultation from expert theologians and biblical scholars and produced by the Lumo Project, the film was given the Dove Faith Friendly Seal for 12+. 

The Gospel of Mark DVD is packed with behind-the-scenes bonus features and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.   According to The Gospel of Mark, Jesus is a heroic man of action, an exorcist, healer, and miracle worker — the Son of God who keeps his identity secret. This critically acclaimed, epic production — five years in the making — is based on the latest theological, historical, and archaeological research, and offers an unforgettable, highly authentic telling of the Jesus story — ending with the empty tomb, a promise to meet again in Galilee, and Jesus’s instructions to spread the good news of the resurrection.

Reggie Bush and wife Lilit Avagyan Expecting Third Child

It's baby number three on the way for Reggie Bush and Lilit Avagyan. The NFL quarterback, 32, and 29 year old Lilit, who is a model, married in July of 2014 at the Grand Del Mar resort in San Diego. Lilit and Reggie are already parents to Briseis, 3, and Uriah, 20 months. Reggie loves being a dad, and wrote about how excited he was to become a father back before Bresis was born. The beautiful mom to be is reported to be in her second trimester.

Reggie famously dated Kim Kardashian back in the mid 2000's, before the couple ultimately split in 2010. Media tabloids have called attention to the fact that Lilit looks a lot like Kim. There are other similiarites as well. Kim and Kanye West were married in May of 2014, and Lilit and Reggie were married in July of the same year. Kim and Kanye are now parents to North, who is 3, and Saint, who is now 15 months old. Lilit and Reggie's two kids are right around the same age. It does seem a little strange that the two couples' lives have mirrored each others so closely, but now it seems like Lilit and Reggie are going to be the first to welcome their third chid together! Congratulations to the happy couple!
