Our family likes to travel. But the actual travel part is difficult if we don’t have a large variety of things to keep the kids entertained. Times have changed from when I was a kid — I honestly remember looking out the window and listening to the radio. But my kids like to have things to do, including having great books to look at and read. National Geographic Kids has some great new, affordable, titles that both my kids love. My kids are 4.5 years a part and they love these books.
As the best-selling kids’ almanac ON THE PLANET, this year’s 10th anniversary 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 10 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. It’s packed with hundreds of photos and facts, crafts and fascinating features about animals, science, nature, technology, conservation and more. For book lovers and reluctant readers alike, the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 is a compelling and balanced 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!”
However, in addition to not only being fun and educational, the National Geographic Kids Almanac is also designed to inspire young readers to be the change they want to see in the world around them, encouraging them to become more involved environmentally, socially and in other ways. In this year’s edition, National Geographic Kids launches the 20/20 Visionary Challenge, asking readers to imagine the world 10 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.
