I think I’m becoming obsessed with almanacs. Thankfully my family humors me. But I love finding out facts and information, as do my kids- their natural curiosity inspires me to be more curious- which just makes for very interesting conversation and adventures in daily life. The 2012 National Geographic Kids Almanac is chock-full of information, gorgeous National Geographic photographs that we’ve all admired forever, a cute little dog named Zipper who alerts kids to something they can find online to expand on the section and so much more. My kids are probably at the VERY beginning of recommended ages for this book but we’ve spent hours looking through it already. I think we’ve almost worn the entire dinosaur section out.
Overflowing with extras and in full color, the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2012 features timely (as well as timeless) information on popular subjects such as amazing animals, cool inventions, world cultures, science, sports, technology, history and more. Supersized new sections deliver hours of fun with games, weird-but-true trivia and facts on newly discovered dinosaurs. More than 500 incredible photographs, 20 full-color maps and 350 easy-to-read pages jam-packed with fun lure kids into learning. Homework Help sections and project ideas make this a book kids will return to again and again throughout the year.
