Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The World Almanac for Kids, 2013 is a vast resource of fast facts that the fourth- through sixth-grade crowd will devour. Jumping from subject to subject in alphabetical order, the book covers not only facts that happened in the year before but also information on topics such as the water cycle, how to say common phrases in different languages, and a history of fashion. Time lines, pictures, graphs, and other visual aids make the information bright and accessible for children, who will most likely sit in the library flipping through the pages and reading aloud to each other. Parents won’t mind stealing the book to sneak a peek and learn a few things, too, which could spark a dinner-table conversation or an educational car ride home. A good pick for school and public libraries, although kids will probably want to take it home and devour it. Grades 4-6. --Erin Linsenmeyer --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This easy-breezy compendium of trivia and useful facts about the world has totally intrigued my young teens and preteens. Whether you need to know the population of Senegal, a brief history of ancient Asia, Justin Beiber's birthday, or all the NASCAR champions since 1985, this book will fill you in. Every page is loaded with pictures in a magazine-style format, drawing kids in quickly and enticing them to turn the pages to learn more, and more, and more. I'm thinking about purchasing more copies as Christmas gifts -- judging by my kids' interest, they'd be a hit with some of my nieces and nephews.

Bought this for my 8 year old daughter because she kept borrowing it from the school library. It is full of fun facts and pretty entertaining for the most part.

Our three sets of grandchildren have some "history" buffs and so this was something educational but fun reading for those and something that some day they can look back and say, "Remember when!"

My son loves to read facts and information -- anything from a singer, movie/TV star, to a sports athlete, to the tallest building in the world. If you have a child like this, they will love this book. I found the book extremely interesting for me! It has colorful pages full of facts and information. Highly recommend.

Kids love to look at this reference. I like the soft covers because of the difference in price and they have to be replaced when using for a reference source for educational purposes.

My five-year-old is at a point in his life where he is craving to learn. During the Olympics, I showed him my World Almanac so we could look at the flags. He also enjoyed looking at the maps and presidents. So, for Christmas, I bought him this book. It gives kids more than enough facts and contains plenty of colored pictures to keep them interested. His book is fairly beat up already from the use. Now that he is in kindergarten, he now has a reference guide if he wants to learn more. For example, they learned about the planets and when he came home that day, he looked them up in the almanac to reinforce what he learned, as well as learn a little more. Now, even I know that Jupiter has 67 moons! This is a great supplemental tool, totally worth the price.
