Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6 Colorful illustrations, an attractive and uncrowded design, subjects of interest to kids, and fascinating details all combine in this book. The table of contents has images for each general category, such as "Astronomy," "Weather," "Nature," and "Sports." A "Useful Things" section includes intriguing articles on "Mayonnaise Magic," "Home Cooking," and creating a time capsule. In addition, for almost every article, there is an activity or project that can be accessed at the Almanac Web site. For example, the article on cacti includes a link to relevant national parks. This entertaining, interactive book will lead children into an exploration of diverse topics.-Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
