National Geographic Kids' Almanac 2012 does it again

National Geographic Kids Almanac 2012Each year, I can't wait to check out National Geographic Kids' Almanac. These books are jam-packed with everything you could imagine and the 2012 edition is no different.

Young readers will be fascinated to learn that in the summer of 2012, London will become the only city to host the Olympics three times; a colossal crater sits right in the middle of a city street in Guatemala City; floating homes are a growing trend; dog poop can double as an energy source; and the biggest snow sculpture in the world can weigh up to 100 tons!

Young readers can dive into different sections such as art, culture, dinosaurs, animals, etc... and there are even homework help sections where you can learn how to write the perfect letter, biography, essay and more. What's even cooler is that the 2012 edition now features digital extras. Just scan bar codes with your smart phone to see free National Geographic animal videos, photo galleries, and trivia quizzes.

This post is part of Nonfiction Monday! Nonfiction Monday takes place every Monday as various blogs throughout the kidlitosphere write about nonfiction books for kids and collect them all in one place. This week, check out the Nonfiction Monday roundup at Chapter Book of the Day. To see the entire schedule, please visit the blog of Anastasia Suen.

Disclosure: Some of the books I review are received from publishers , PR agencies, and authors, but it does not sway my opinion of the book.
