The World Almanac for Kids 2013 {Review and Giveaway}

My kids love facts and trivia; actually, don’t most kids? The World Almanac for Kids 2013, filled with bright, colorful illustrations, fills that need for more information, covering a wide range of topics that appeal to lovers of sports, geography, history and many many more.

The chapters are organized by area of interest and the table of contents includes pictures and a more detailed breakdown for some of the larger sections. E.g. under Sports, you can turn right to the page on Gymnastics, or for the United States chapter, easily find the page that tells you how the states got their names. The detailed index also aids in tracking down any topic of interest. The layout makes it easy to flip around or just read straight through.

The information is current, including today’s fashions, popular games, up to date environmental data and recent discoveries, but also includes historical facts and descriptions of careers related to the topics. Global trends are highlighted as well as U.S.-centric features.

There’s also a Homework Helper section that provides tips on test-taking and writing research papers, and throughout the book are study and learning tips. There are fun games and puzzles such as crosswords, word searches, and matching games. Each chapter also has a question that can be answered within that chapter.

    We all love facts….but the elementary contingent would like it the most. They like to be able to know cool facts that the rest of us don’t know *yet*.

    We are homeschooling this year. Rather than buying a packaged history/social studies curriculum I decided to create my own! I have been lucky enough to find great tjings at the library but a free almanac would be great. My girls, 8.5 & 11, also enjoy trivia and fact finding.

    My grandson would love it! We keep a book like this in our car and it’s good for miles of entertainment and reading!

    My 10 year old has loved the World Almanacs for years. He is a fact hoarder and will read them and then spout oddball facts at random. He would be thrilled to actually have his own copy.
