I grew up looking through copies of National Geographic at the library and my aunt’s house. I’m sure for most of us, the signature yellow cover instantly pops in our head when we hear the name. I know even today I look forward to the arrival of the newest issue every month to our house.
That is why last year when we discovered they were now doing full color almanacs for kids we bought a copy right away. The kids loved looking through all the pictures and more then once would ask us, “did you know?” and then share some fact they had just learned about from the book.
National Geographic Kids is a whole new brand focused on the same teaching about the world we live in, but in a way that is much more digestible for kids. The site has games, videos, stories and more to keep kids coming back and learning at the same time. Their yearly almanacs are a great addition to any house that has kids in it. Trust me that you won’t be disappointed.
They sent me one of the 2010 editions and I was happy to see a lot of new information for the kids. I’m actually planning on giving this copy to some relatives for Christmas since I don’t think they have a copy in their house and I think they would really benefit from it. Shhh…don’t tell them.
One of the great things about when I got contacted by National Geographic is that they are allowing us to give away a copy to the readers of Digital Dads. I don’t think it’ll get to you before Christmas, but it’ll make a great birthday or just because gift as well.
