Overview

Check out the world’s best-selling National Geographic Kids 2012 Almanac, No. 3 on The New York Times Best Sellers list for Children's Paperbacks. In the lively style of National Geographic Kids magazine, this colorful page-turner excites young people about their world and everything in it. The National Geographic Kids 2012 Almanac—also available in Canadian and International editions—is packed with fun-to-browse features, useful reference material, homework help developed by educators, and the kind of quirky facts that kids adore. Amazing animals, cool inventions, funny roadside attractions, outer space, green living, natural disasters, maps, puzzles—it's all here in one irresistible volume.

While competing almanacs offer about 10 percent new content each year, this book delivers at least 40 percent new content, including new articles, games, photos, and facts. A newly updated Your World section opens the almanac with timely information and unique National Geographic content. A 100% new game section features photo-puzzles, illustrated pen-and-pencil games, and other brainteasers. Every chapter is updated with exciting new content: photos of animals, adventure, and nature; maps of the continents, new this year; hundreds of facts and figures; and fascinating stories about incredible creatures, space, vacations, and more. Based in part on the award-winning National Geographic Kids magazine, the National Geographic Kids 2012 Almanac also boasts material created by National Geographic's contributing researchers and photographers in the field. With the 2010 and 2011 editions selling hundreds of thousands of copies, this bold new almanac is poised to make an even bigger splash.

The National Geographic Kids 2012 Almanac is the only interactive Almanac for kids, now featuring fun digital extras, such as bar codes that you can  scan with your smart phone to see free National Geographic animal videos, photo galleries, and trivia quizzes. No smart phone? No problem. A companion website provides even more multimedia fun.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati J.D.
Is there a curious child in your life? The world is a fascinating place and, with this almanac, young readers can explore subjects as varied as extreme photography, albino animals, world currencies, the Big Bang, and much, much more. So, what really killed the dinosaurs? And what are the hot new movies coming up in 2012? Find out right here. Presented in a very cool, concise format, with illustrations and photographs that enhance the book immensely, this title will please and expand the horizons of many young readers. The myriad authors and illustrators of this accessible reference book know their target audience well. There are chapters featuring super science, the wonders of nature, awesome adventure, pets, and going green, among others. Parents and teachers will love the "Homework Help" pages scattered throughout the book. For example, there are instructions for writing biographies, research papers, and "perfect" essays. A whole section about games will entertain young readers with jokes, puzzles, and mazes. Readers with smart phones (or computers) can also take advantage of the digital extras provided with this title, which allow them to watch videos, play games, and discover more information about subjects that intrigue them. Featured in a paperback, magazine format, this book offers a cross-section of stimulating subjects for bright young minds. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati, J.D.
School Library Journal
Gr 3–8—National Geographic has built a reputation for providing breathtaking images and this book doesn't disappoint, providing high-quality, full-color photographs or maps on every page, accompanying information about animals, nature, history, and cultures. The almanac is divided into 10 major sections with catchy titles such as "Your World 2012," "Awesome Adventures," and "Geography Rocks." Homework-help sections offer assistance with common student tasks—writing letters, conducting research, and giving speeches, for example. This edition also includes mobile media features. Readers with access to a smartphone can download a free QR (Quick Response) code reader at a website listed inside the book's cover and then scan the 10 codes sprinkled throughout the text to access videos or view further information or related projects. The same offerings, as well as frequently updated blogs, pictures, trivia, and articles, labeled as "Cool Clicks" in the book, are available online. Students can learn so much from this almanac and its online features. It is also a logical point for starting projects or for teachers to use when introducing concepts as varied as Pompeii, crystal caves, natural disasters, biomes, mythology, dinosaurs, jaguars, and energy. Ideal for reference and circulating collections.—Beth McGuire, Hempfield Area School District, Greensburg, PA
