Win National Geographic guides for kids!

Competition closes: 10:00, 15 June 2018

We have five sets to give away!

These newly-published National Geographic books are suitable for older kids, age 7 and upwards.

'How to Speak Dog' and 'How to Speak Cat' are guides about what the body language of dogs and cats means plus tips on games to play, entertaining facts and how to be a responsible pet owner. 'How to Speak Emoji' focuses on the history and meaning of popular digital symbols - and some of these are a real surprise - read the book to get informed!

Retailing at £7.99 each, these 'How to Speak' guides are detailed and full of tonnes of interesting info.

We passed on copies to our young reviewers - over to them to tell you more about them!

Angus, age 8, reviewed 'How to Speak Dog'

"This is a great fact book! It gives you lots of tips on how to listen to your dog by recognising what their actions and barks mean. People who have a dog (or are getting one) would love this book!"

Lucy, age 12, reviewed 'How to Speak Cat'

"I really enjoyed How to Speak Cat because it has lots of fun facts about cats (hence the title). I think this book is really good because it is easy to understand, but at the same time it gives you a challenge. This means it is good for students like me because it encourages you to find out the meaning of words you haven't seen before. Also the book is laid out in a way which makes it easier to understand and the facts are clear so you know what the authors are talking about. Since reading this book, my knowledge about cats has greatly improved. For example I have learnt: cats, like elephants, are digitgrade walkers which means they walk on their toes; I have learnt that cats' eyes don't focus very well and their colour vision is very poor. To cats, most colours appear faded, and they can't see red or orange at all. I also learnt that licking reduces tension in a cat as well as reducing their heart rate, and a cat can see 6 times better than a human at night. I also learnt lots more fun and interesting facts. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend because it is very well written and it is very interesting. I absolutely adore this book and I wouldn't swap it for any other non-fiction or fiction book."

Maisie, age 10, reviewed 'How to Speak Emoji'

"This is a very interesting and fun book. I never knew what half of the emojis in the world meant but now I do. I also found out I had been using loads of the emojis wrongly. The pages of facts are fascinating - for example I didn't know before that the word 'emoji' sounding  quite like 'emotion' is just a coincidence. I recommend this book to anybody who wants to find out more about emojis and their meaning."
