I have fond memories of reading the World Almanac when I was a kid. As I've grown up I haven't really looked at one in awhile. When I saw this was available I grabbed it thinking this would be a fun activity for me and my kids. I'm happy to say that it was just as entertaining and informative as I'd remembered.
I imagine most people are familiar with the World Almanac but if you're not, it includes an endless amount of trivia and facts. There's everything you can think of in it. There is information about people, geography, history, sports, pop trivia, politics and much more.
My kids are 10 and 12 and we spent a little time many evenings reading through it. They would pick things they were interested in and we would read through that section. The book itself is huge and they loved looking through all that chapters trying to figure out what to read about next.
We have had this about a month and a half and we are no where near being done with it. This was a fun and informative book and would work well for either an individual or a family activity. It's the perfect resource for those of us who loving learning new facts.
