National Geographic Kids “Hey, Baby!” Book Review
I believe my love of books started at a very young age. I can’t say for sure when but as early as I can remember, books have always been a source of joy and comfort for me. My mom used to tell stories of how when I was little I walk across our backyard and through a neighbors yard to visit a local preschool. Then she would tell the story of how I got my first library card at five. Once I got married I want to find ways to carry that love of books on to my kids.

Books are always under our Christmas tree and given for birthday presents. My kids have a full library of books for all ages and my husband and I continue to add to their collection as much as we can. When Moms Meet gave me the opportunity to review a few copies of books from National Geographic Kids I jumped at the opportunity. Our box had three books including Hey, Baby!: A Collection of Pictures, Poems, and Stories from Nature’s Nursery.
About Hey, Baby!
Hey, Baby! introduces your kids to the cutest, cuddliest, and cleverest baby animals of land, air, and sea—each with its own extraordinary life story. From the teensiest turtle hatchling to the biggest baby whales, readers will ooh and aah over all the sweet wee ones. Featuring stunning color photographs, fact-filled profiles, whimsical poems, and more, this book will be a favorite for young readers. While enjoying the lyrical beauty of Hey, Baby!, families will learn about earth’s different biomes and how animals adapt to each. They will also learn about the cultures around the world that gave rise to the varied animal folktales included in the book.
We absolutely loved this book. It’s a great book for soon to be parents or anyone with a new baby. It’s filled with stories, eye-catching photos, and fun facts about the different baby animals in the book. My kids loved learning about all the different babies of the animal kingdom. They were learning and didn’t even realize it at any time. We used the book to have further discussions about the animals and their natural habitats. Another bonus for us was learning that when you purchase National Geographic Kids books it helps supports the exploration, research, and conservation efforts of the National Geographic Society. What a great gift to give that keeps on giving.
Where to Purchase
Hey, Baby!: A Collection of Pictures, Poems, and Stories from Nature’s Nursery is available to purchase wherever books are sold, including traditional bookstores like Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million, as well as local independent stores, and mass merchants like Target, Costco, Walmart, amazon.com, and shopng.com/books.
Another book in my box included 1001 Ways to Slow Down. In this day and age, I promise all the time to take things slow. Reduce my stress levels, and learn to relax a little more. While the suggestions in the book are small they make a world of difference. It’s amazing how small simple things can make a world of difference in your life.
This irresistible list book from National Geographic provides lighthearted quick hits of inspiration for those of us who feel overwhelmed—which is to say, all of us. Musings, activity suggestions, and illuminating quotes are paired with whimsical art on themes such as living in the moment, achieving balance, relieving stress, developing patience, and appreciating the world around us.
The final book in our box was one from the Let’s Play Collection. This had four books in one, featuring stories and photos about kittens, puppies, cubs, and otters. This book would be a great gift for younger children. It helps introduce them to new words while learning about the world around them. At the end of each section are activities that are fun and engaging for parents and kids. It’s priced at $7.99 retail, making it a very affordable gift option.
