After my six year old’s first day of school I found out that he wasn’t going to be very forthcoming about his day. I was dying for some details and remembered that I had just received the The World Almanac for Kids 2013 in the mail the day prior. What a perfect way to celebrate the first day! It also worked to essentially
bribe convince him to share a few things that happened at school.
I knew my inquisitive son Lucian would love it. He is always asking questions, many of which I don’t know the answers and we have to look them up. He just can’t seem to get enough of facts about everything from the solar system to history and can read several grades ahead so I liked knowing he could read the book himself.
Lucian was especially excited to see an entire section dedicated to facts about our presidents and natural disasters, including his current obsession with the Titanic. It has kept him very busy and when given the chance to bring any toy to Grandma’s house, he begged to bring his almanac instead and read it along the way.. (That’s my boy!)
Even if your child doesn’t typically enjoy fact over fiction books, The World Almanac for Kids 2013 does a great job of making it entertaining. It includes sections about pop culture like sports and movies and presents them with colorful pictures and graphics. I found myself flipping through and learning things I didn’t know myself. No wonder it is the best-selling reference books for kids. It is an entertaining read for any age and works as a great reference for homework!
Recommend for children ages 8 and up, The World Almanac for Kids has a list price of $13.99 and is available at retailers nationwide. Pick it up online for a discount at our affiliate Amazon!
