My Thoughts

My family and I are huge fans of anything National Geographic. We particularly love the books that are available for children. Hey, Baby! is one of the cutest and factual books. The book is big, colorful and has sturdy pages. I love reading it to my kiddos because its teaches them all about nature's baby animals. While reading, I couldn't count how many times we all said "awww" when we turned the page. Seeing all of the baby animals made us want to keep reading. My kids really enjoyed learning about their habitats, friendships, folktales and animal rescues. I look forward to reading Hey, Baby! over and over again!

My Thoughts

Back To Nature makes one delicious cookie! These cookies are loaded with chunk of chocolate and are oh so crunchy. I love eating them right out of the box or dipping them into a cold glass of milk. The cookies are bite-sized and perfect for kids. My son loves when I put a few of these cookies into his lunch box for school. I have never had a cookie before that was made with wheat flour. I must say, there is no taste difference whatsoever. The chocolate chunks? Are exactly that. Chunks of semi-sweet chocolate! So yummy! I have found my new favorite cookie, thanks, Back To Nature!
