New from National Geographic – the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2010!
I sat down with Maya moments after receiving this book and we flipped through it together. The content is easy to read, the graphics are eye-catching, and just the sheer amount of information packed into this little book is impressive! It’s divided into 9 different sections and color-coded so you can easily find what you’re looking for.
Bet you didn’t know that a cockroach can live for up to nine days without its head… or that the tallest snowman ever built was taller than a ten-story building! Just two of the hundreds of facts that can be found in this book (and that my 5-year-old is impressing her friends with!) With more than 350 pages of amazing facts, crafts, games, puzzles, and hundreds of beautiful photos, I’m sure we’ll be reaching for this book often, whether it be for some fun reading, or as a reference for homework help once the girls are in school.
Best for kids ages 8 to 12, and available in both hard and softcover versions, the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2010 can be purchased on the National Geographic website – http://bit.ly/NGKids-Shop – and everywhere books are sold!

So leave your comment, follow @NGKids on Twitter if you’d like, and good luck! It’s really a great book.
