Worried about summer brain drain? Me too! My kids always regress during the summer months and the only thing that stops it is reading every day. That’s why I’m featuring a nonfiction book from National Geographic Kids or Animal Planet each week this summer.
We’re kicking things off with National Geographic The Angry Birds Movie: Red’s Big Adventure. If your kids have seen The Angry Birds Movie, they’ll love diving into this book. Keep reading for more info.
The Angry Birds Movie: Red’s Big Adventure
This latest entry in the National Geographic Angry Birds series will take you on an amazing journey with Red, the leader of the Angry Birds flock, along with Matilda, Chuck, Bomb, Terence, and the mysterious Mighty Eagle. Featuring The Angry Birds Movie (2016) story world, this book is filled with all the fun facts and information Red and the flock need to embark on their big adventure. From identifying wildlife to navigating by the stars to building a shelter and setting traps (for any roaming Piggies), this book will be sure to educate and entertain.

Our Thoughts on National Geographic The Angry Birds Movie
Kids that love The Angry Birds Movie will also love reading the book. Rather than being a re-telling of the movie, it takes readers into the world of “Angry Birds” and beyond. Using the characters from the movie, this book explores islands, animals, geography, and much more. It expounds on various elements from the movie. For example, for the “Bird Village” section, it looks at various species of birds, their habitats, and how evolution affected them.
Bits from the movie and commentary from the characters are interspersed throughout the book. The Angry Birds Movie: Red’s Big Adventure offers plenty to its readers, especially kids that like learning about nature.
The text is fairly complex, so I would recommend this book for kids in the 9-12 age bracket (or older). Ultimately, this is a fun and unique use of pop culture to get kids interested in nonfiction and reading.
