Best DK Smithsonian Books for Kids

Are your kids as crazy about books as mine? Since they were young, we habitually put one or two DK Smithsonian books on the coffee table for them to look at. At first, that was all they did, flipping through the pages. But then, an amazing thing happened. They started to take the books on the sofa, under the sunlight, and begin reading.

Now that they grow more knowledge, I have to consult Alexa about the more difficult questions they ask me. Which is fine. I love that the kids are smarter than me! Books are one of the best ways to learn about something. Give kids the gift of knowledge in the forms of these DK Smithsonian books; each of it digs deep into a particular subject like dinosaurs and space. Check them out below, if you’d like.
