I was able to received two books, one is a student planner and the other was a Atlas. Which both went to my son as he is 11th grader in high school, special needs student.

Weird but True! Daily Planner: 365 Days to Fill with School, Sports, Friends and Fun (ages 8-12, $12.99) – Nat Geo Kids has made getting organized for school FUN and injects some creative thinking into the process, too! In the planner, each day of the school year is peppered with weird-but-true facts. Turn the pages and write the class schedule for the year, record school work, keep track of activities, and plan social time, all while learning wild and wacky things about the world around them. Fun writing prompts invite students to celebrate weirdness and hone their writing skills at the same time. Plus there are homework help sections, useful distance, volume, weight and multiplication charts and tons of space to write or doodle their daily schedule any way they wish. With beautiful full-color artwork and engaging information and activities, this is the must-have planner for the 2017/2018 school year. Spiral bound and durable, it will last until the final school bell rings in June! Sample spreads can be viewed here.
I really like this planner as it has some really interesting facts in it. My son didn’t like it as his school gives them one unlike when I went to school we had to supply our own. This would had be great back then. Did You Know that the Oldest Valentine written was in 1415, wonder what was said in it.
National Geographic Kids United States Atlas, 5th Edition (ages 8012, $12.99) – This is THE gold standard of atlases and a must-have reference for home or school. Featuring more than 75 maps, over 350 color images, lively photo essays, and an easy-to-use place-name index National Geographic ’s world-renowned cartographers have paired up with education experts to create an unparalleled resource of information about the United States, Kids will discover the latest data and trends regarding land and water, people and places and eight socially themed maps on nature, population, energy and fire delve deeper into key issues.
This great to use as a study tool as the kids nowadays don’t know how to read a atlas. Since my son doesn’t know how to read one this will be something that we teach him along with having images of the different states.
