This giveaway is now over. The winner is Debra P. Congrats!
I remember back in the day (and I may be dating myself here) when almanacs were boring. You used them for school projects (when you needed to) and never looked at it again. All I have to say is that my kids have it way better! I have to admit I was excited to check out the National Geographic Kids 2010 Almanac. The cover alone makes you want to look inside and find interesting facts. What surprised me most was that my husband sat in his chair and read the almanac for himself one night. I knew my kids would love it, but my husband got drawn in too!
My two year old likes the pictures. We've been able to take the book and work it into his speech and get him to say a few more words. My 6 year old also enjoyed the pictures. However, she liked the facts too. Both my kids loved the section on dinosaurs and loved finding pictures of snakes to show my husband (who is NOT a fan of snakes at all. I love that we all found this book great! This book is just full of knowledge (which will come in handy for my next game of Trivia Pursuit!). National Geographic Kids 2010 Almanac is definitely a book that's hard to put down once you open it no matter what your age.
Since I loved this book so much, I've arranged for one lucky reader to also win a copy of the National Geographic Kids 2010 Almanac. Here's what you need to do:
Check out the National Geographic site and tell me what you hope to learn about if you win this book. Did you want to learn that in Scotland residents open their front doors before midnight on New Year's Eve to let the old year out and the new year in? Or did you want to know that in the 1870's a swarm of locusts migrated over the Great Plains that stretched 300 miles long and 100 miles wide?
