" There is a loooooot of information in this book! I've enjoyed reading this and so have my kids. Here's a link to my complete review: https://agoodreid.blogspot.com/2019/0... " said.

"This year the Almanac features all-new content, interviews with explorers in each chapter, a special look at what was going on in the world when the first National Geographic Kids Almanac came out 10 years ago, plus the results of the 2019 Almanac Challenge and a new Challenge for kids who want to get involved with helping our planet.

This book is packed with incredible photos, tons of fun facts, crafts, activities, and fascinating features about animals, science, nature, technology, conservation, and more. There's a whole chapter full of fun and games, including activities, jokes, and comics. Practical reference material, including fast facts and maps of every country, has been fully updated. Homework help on key topics is sprinkled throughout the book.
I like this book very much.

"I simply love these annual almanacs. There is something that simply intrigues me about maps and these folks do maps RIGHT! I am captivated about places, creatures, things I've never seen and will never be able to see. These folks bring it right into my home, heart, and hands in these colorful and insightful books. They are designed for KIDS! Right! But this granny absolutely loves them!

There are so many facets to the 2020 Almanac - Cultural, Space and Earth, Fun and Games, Exploration, Nature, History Happens (history buffs like myself love this one!), Geography (map lovers and those who love studying the "layout of the land" will relish this one!). So much good stuff!

I highly recommend.

"National Geographic has been making almanacs for ten years and amazing non-fiction books for as long as I can remember. I loved them when our kids were younger and I still love reading them. I always learn something and the kids in the classroom love reading and sharing what they learned with me and their friends.

Eleven sections offer a wide variety of topics including animals, science, space, nature, history, geography, and pure fun. Since National Geographic is celebrating ten years of publishing almanacs, the book begins with a roundup of ways the world has changed in ten years. Then moves into each section. My favorite is always the animal section including stories about amazing animals and their Top 20 Cutest Animals.

The Fun and Games section offers all kinds of word games and quizzes to keep kids learning. Real life explorers are also featured in each section offering kids a peek behind the scenes and a way for kids to continue to follow their interests as an adult.

Amazing photography and brief, concise bits of information to keep your kids learning for days makes this a perfect book to encourage learning during the summer break.

This year’s edition is much more interactive, launching a 20/20 Visionary Challenge. Readers are asked to imagine the world ten years from now and come up with a positive change, invention, or discovery in whatever area interests them. These ideas will be featured in the next Almanac 2021.

"I learned many things just by reading this almanac. I learned that Chile and Colombia are the only two countries in South America with coast lines on both the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean. I learned of an invention called the oombrella. This is an umbrella that can alert me of when it is going to rain within fifteen minutes. It alerts me of rain by sending a ping to my cell phone. I also learned of a real life transformer that is being developed by Japanese engineers. This transformer can turn into both a robot and a car. This is an amazing invention that can travel for 37 miles per hour.

I liked looking at pictures of things I have never seen before. There is a picture of a gorilla called Louis who walks on two legs in the Philadelphia Zoo. There is another picture of a beautiful colorful coral reef in the water of the Caribbean Sea. There is a picture of collection of rainbow colored rocks in a geological park in China. These pictures are amazing to look at. It is very difficult for me to travel because of my physical disability, so I found these pictures to be delightful and insightful.

I liked the Earth explorers profiled in this book like Barrington Irving. He is the youngest African America to travel around the world in a plane. He flew around the world in 2007 at the age of 23. I also admire the work of Katy Walter who has looked for methane gas in 250 lakes in Siberia and Russia. Her work has heightened the awareness of global warming.

This almanac also offers great tips on how to write an effective essay and a letter. I love to learn about different countries. This book provides tips about how to do that. I also liked the tips how to become a better photographer. Even though I am not a student and I don't take pictures, I found this information to be very detailed and interesting.
