About this Series

The National Geographic Society was founded in 1888 "to increase and diffuse geographic knowledge." The Society believes in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. Its mission is to inspire, illuminate, and teach. Today that mission is continued, not only by the Society and the magazine it publishes, but through the extremely wide range of books and learning materials it provides for young readers.

National Geographic publishes volumes on geography, animals, meteorology, space exploration, and other areas of popular interest—plus books on history, fun collections of facts and trivia, activity kits, games, and guides. From the youngest children just learning to read to older students pursuing specialized interests, National Geographic is the trusted source that readers turn to in order to learn about their world. And throughout all of these books, there are the visually stunning National Geographic photographs that have been the signature aspect of the magazine from its very earliest days.
