National Geographic Kids Almanac 2015

June 23, 2014

Well that's a Very Serious sounding name! But rest assured that the 'National Geographic Kids Almanac 2015' is a book FULL O' FUN.

Hey ho, you're going to notice right off the bat that we found a ton of the pages that have funny KITTIES on them to show you, but let me tell you, there is a ton more in this book than just cute cats with two colored faces. This book has....stuff......about everything. Like, everything.

I don't know about your kids, but mine has always been into nonfiction fact books. And now that she's a little older, she loves almanac type of random and bizarre and unique information-y factoids.

We got this at the grocery store! Actually, Julia found it, grabbed it, did a little dance with it, and begged for it. At the time, we were sort of dealing with some kiddo dramarama at home, every year at the end of the school year this happens ~ next year....I'll be READY and prepared. With a vacation ticket JUST FOR ME. And a suitcase full of chocolate. So I held onto the book for about a week until things settled down. They settled a bit down. And when she finally got the book, you would have thought I had handed her chocolate cake or $20.

It hasn't been further than arm's reach away from her ever since!

This is useful info, yo.

(They forgot to add Number 6 Freaky Place in Space ~ MY HEAD.) I feel like I'm kind of rambling about what's in this thing, but really.....#everything! Also, many 'Stump Your Parents' pages. (i'm easily stumped.)

Does anyone remember 'Ripley's Believe It or Not' books?? I loved those books, while we're on the topic of rambling.

Ok one more crazy kitty picture - kitties with funny hair!

SO much awesome. Your kids will love, and they will learn cool and interesting facts. I'm going to start giving these out as birthday gifts.

  1. I used to love National Geographic when I was younger and I don't think they even had a Kids version back then! This is a great way for the little ones to learn without boring them. Had to laugh at the kitty's hair. Have you shown Sally yet?

    1. I have not, but thank you for putting the idea into my head that putting a pink wig on Sally cat would be a VERY excellent idea!!!! tee hee

  2. You know we love the Ripley's books! I think the girls would really like a National Geo almanack. I alway see them in the Scholastic catalogs from the school. Maybe I should jump on that next year...

  4. I love random factoids. Probably why I was on academic team in high school. I remember helping us to win but losing some MAJOR cool points through being able to rattle off all the Cartwright boys on Bonanza. Everyone's face looked like, "why does she even know that?!"

    My great-grandfather was a big game hunter so shelves and shelves of the den were filled with National Geographic. I always loved the "traditional costumes." And all the jewelry! Lots of hippie/boho inspiration in old issues of that magazine.

  5. Love it. Lulu's still into Lulu Ladybug Girl and the like, but when she starts to read, this will be so good. Did you ever have the "Tell Me Why" books? I don't know if they print them anymore as they'd probably be irrelevant in this digital age, but they served the same kind of purpose in a much less colorful way.

    Thanks for this!

    1. no I never saw those! i love that J is into fun and useful fact info as opposed to the oddball stuff I liked, such as reading about E.S.P. and the Bermuda Triangle. That was the kind of 'fact' stuff I was into reading about when I was a school age kid, ha ha ha......:)
