National Geographic, Susan Kehnemui Donnelly, Editor. National Geographic Kids Almanac 2010 (published in 2009 by National Geographic). Who says that learning about geography, history, and science can’t be enjoyable? The new, first-ever National Geographic Kids Almanac 2010, with over 500 stunning photographs and more than 300 pages, is the kind of book that I could have sat down with when I was a student and spent many happy hours leafing through–and for that matter still can! This backpack sized reference book with full color design and easy to read format is filled with amazing facts arranged in nine chapters: Your World 2010; Awesome Adventure; Amazing Animals; Culture Connection; Geography Rocks (what else would you expect from National Geographic?) with listings of information about every nation on earth and each of the United States; Going Green; History Happens; Wonders of Nature; and Super Science. In addition to fun crafts, games, jokes, and recipes, the almanac will help children get ready for school with a section entitled “Homework Help” at the end of each chapter on things like how to write an essay, make a report, read a map, give a speech, and do a science project. Curious kids will find this book both interesting and useful.
