I find this book very unique and interesting because of its rich details, stories and the colorful and fascinating pictures
I gave the NatGeo Almanac for Kids 2014 to four children and they were immediately fascinated by it. It can be a great reference for school projects I'm buying one for myself.
Really a great book for kids. My daughter loves it.
Our two grandsons ages 8 and 6 both liked it a lot. My husband and I enjoyed looking at it before it was wrapped as a gift. Both boys are very curious about the world, animals and nature and I believe they will enjoy having it.
I purchased this book for my 9 year old grandson who loves to read and always wants all the facts! National Geographic for kids is a winner!
