This informational book is a collection of facts just for kids. It's got information about lots of different things from animals to going green to history to geography. There is even a section of games. It has photographs on every page and uses bold colors and different fonts to help the students get all the facts they are looking for. It is a book that a student could use to get a quick fact, as well as a book that could hold his or her attention for a long time just browsing through it. A sure favorite in any LMC (and in our house).

Do you know what's great about an Almanac? The answer is it's easy to find all types of information in an organized manner. But, what's great about a NG Kids Almanac is not only does it have great information, the photos are phenomenal. But that's not all NG Kids has to offer, there are games, special calendars, and special links so readers can be more interactive. There are more than 500 incredible photos through out. Some of the weirdest animals you will ever see, for example, Mr. Blobbly is literally a fish that looks like a mushy gray blob. He even has his own website and he's housed in a museum and you can follow him on Facebook. His scientific name is Fathead Sculpin fish. Another strange creature kids will love to read about is nicknamed after the Abominable Snowman, it's the Yeti Crab. He's small blind and furry. If readers want to know the secret life of turtles there is a site listed and when you go to the link you will see the animals live and in action with a crittercam-wildcam right at your fingertips. While flipping through the vivid and colorful pages readers can read about Holidays, Culture, Food and Super Science facts. The games section has aliens that have lost their way home, lost and found items in a movie theater and a fill-in the blank safari adventure to name a few. In the Wonders of Nature section readers will learn about Biomes, which are major communities where plants and animals adapt to their specific surroundings. Forest, fresh water, marine, desert, grassland and tundra areas fall into this category. If you have a smart phone there on codes on select pages that you can scan to explore more about NG Kids right from your phone. Readers will also learn about awesome adventures, history, dangerous creatures, how to go green and the world's coolest and largest skyscrapers like the amazing rotating building that looks like a rubics cube, the Dynamic Towers are located in Dubai, that is when they are built. Learn more about the Great Wall of China and the Pyramids of Egypt. In the back of the book are indexes and answers for easy reference. Kids, parents and teachers will love this wonderful fact filled guide to use and share for many years to come. ( )
