National Geographic Kids Almanac 2021, U.S. Edition by National Geographic Kids
5 out of 5 stars
This book is full of weird facts and details about exploration, history, space, science, animals, ecosystems, geography, and nature. So of course, I devoured this book and enjoyed every colorful page!
With beautiful photos and maps, this book gives a quick look into fascinating cultures, amazing explorers, newly discovered animal species, and dazzling planets and stars all over the galaxy.
I especially loved the section about Space and Earth. It has information about minerals, and lava, and how the earth is formed, and about the vastness of space and all the wild phenomena out there in the universe. There are sections for dwarf planets and black holes, and of course a 2021 calendar of the best times to watch the skies for meteor showers, supermoons, or an eclipse.
There is also a cool history section full of amazing facts about Native Americans, Egyptian mummies, the city of Petra, the Chinese terra-cotta warriors, and a list of all the American presidents and their stats.
The geography section has a list of the flags of each country and some stats about each nation. The maps of each continent include some facts about the highest and lowest places on the continent, the population, the largest lakes or mountain ranges, and the coldest or hottest areas.
There even some quizzes and activity pages! The book would be a useful tool for school, since it has “Homework Help” pages with tips on how to give an oral report, how to write a biography, how to join a science fair, how to read a map, and how to research a different country.
As always, I am very impressed with Nat Geo’s beautiful photos and colorful pages! This is a must-read for any kid who is curious and loves to learn.
