Yesterday National Geographic announced a number of family bloggers who will participate in the National Geographic Kids Insider brand ambassador program for the 2016-2017 yearlong assignment. I am beyond thrilled that my name is included on that list! We are such huge fans of National Geographic, especially my little nature-lover/scientist/wannabe space explorer.
For those not familiar with National Geographic Kids, let me tell you a little bit about this amazing entity. NGK is a unique resource that teaches kids all about the world and how it works. At the same time, it empowers them to succeed and make it a better place! Can’t go wrong with that! I just love that NGK inspires young adventurers, like my son, with their (award-winning) magazines, books, apps, games, toys, videos, events and website.

As my son goes into Kindergarten next week, he is beyond excited for what he will learn in the upcoming year. I love that being an “Insider” will allow me access to a behind-the-scenes look at National Geographic’s resources, activities, content and projects for kids and families. This will go great with his upcoming school year! I will also receive review copies of books, magazines and toys, and have the opportunity to participate in interviews with authors, explorers and editors. How amazing is that???
According to a recent press release, Melina Bellows, Executive Vice President and Creative Director of NGK stated “This year’s group of digital influencers inspires us with their passion for raising tomorrow’s explorers, conservationists, scientists and storytellers.” Truly drives home what an honor this is to work with NGK.
