I don’t know what it is about summer, but it seems like my family is just as busy in the summer months as we are during the school year! (OK, maybe not quite as busy, but pretty close.) Between baseball practices and games, trips to the pool and swim pond, parks and picnic excursions, and the occasional road trip, our summer is jam packed.
A summer on the go and great books go together like sun and surf! Just in time for vacation travel, summer reading, and camp care packages, National Geographic Kids is releasing a very special 10th anniversary edition of its New York Times best-selling almanac for kids: National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020!
This year’s edition features all-new content, interviews with renowned National Geographic explorers in each chapter, a special look at what was going on in the world when the first National Geographic Kids Almanac came out ten years ago, plus the results of the 2019 Almanac Challenge — Lions Forever Poster Contest — and a new challenge for kids who want to get involved with helping our planet.
This best-selling kids’ almanac is packed with hundreds of photos and facts, crafts and fascinating features about animals, science, nature, technology, conservation and more. My kids love to read, but this book isn’t just about reading! The National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 is a combination of:
- Fun and games, including activities, jokes, quizzes and comics
- Practical resources, including homework help and fast facts and maps of every country
- Exciting sections on pop culture, cool technology, extreme exploration and more
- Lighthearted favorites like the “Cutest Animals of 2020!”
I also like that this year’s edition launches the 20/20 Visionary Challenge, asking readers to imagine the world ten years from now and to picture a positive change, invention, or discovery they’d like to see become reality, in whatever area interests them: animals, people, places, science, technology or beyond — the sky’s the limit! Kids will be able to read some of their great ideas in next year’s Almanac 2021.
